Science - Geology / Thermotectonics Western Pyrenees
|Spanish term or phrase: la traslación ibérica|
|En otros términos, en un esquema de evolución geodinámica, el cambio en las relaciones intraplacas, desde ***la traslación ibérica*** hasta la extensión cretácica se caracteriza por:|
desarrollo de una Sv en un régimen traspresivo sinextroso (112 Ma); ascensión y exhumación de rocas mantélicas (110-105 Ma); intrusión de vulcanismo alcalino (110-85 Ma); y, por último, neoformación de minerales en un régimen HT-LP (93-81 Ma).
Not my thing in general. Using excellent glossaries and all being checked by some Swiss guy who works in the field...Nevertheless, would rather get this stuff right first time. I thought that "traslacion" would be shift here, but not getting many hits. Any ideas from those more experienced in this field would be welcome. UK English please. Thanks very much in advance. :)
|translation of Iberia|
I'm not a geologist either, but it appears your term just might be "translation".

traslación - translation
The Tertiary deformation of the Iberian plate is here interpreted as the result of changes in the coupling between the Iberian–African plates. During the early stages of the Africa/Iberia subduction (Palaeocene), deformation was confined at the Betic plate boundary. From the Eocene, during the collision in the southern plate margin, compressional deformation delocalized and distributed throughout the Iberian plate. First, in the Pyrenees, where the main stage of thrusting occurred during the Late Eocene – Early Oligocene. Then (mainly Oligocene – Late Miocene), in the inner part of the Iberian plate, forming basement uplifts in the Iberian Chain and the Central System, in correspondence of pre-existing (Mesozoic and Variscan) structures. Finally, during the decay of compression inside the Iberian plate, extension took place the Mediterranean margin and the Alboran Sea.

|Loads of decent hits for this one, all exactly on this very same tectonic event. I think shift could also work, but am going to go with this term due to the relevance of the references I'm finding. Thanks everyone, Kim especially. Cheers guys. Have a nice week. :)|
