Spanish term or phrase:acercamiento
This means the coming together of the plates, I believe. Have not been able to find the technical term. Here's some context:
Sin embargo, si admitimos el fin del estadio extensional al finalizar el cretácico, se deduce que la velocidad de acercamiento Iberia-Eurasia entre el límite K-T (65.5 Ma) hasta el desarrollo de Sn a los 61 Ma, fue de 13.5 mm/y.
It's probably so simple, but I am not sure how to put this in English. Thanks for your help in advance. UK English. Cheers. :)
Hi S Ben, yes, this is the convergence of the Iberian and Eurasian plates, and on the Net your answer is coming up nicely under any searches such as "convergence of Iberia and Eurasia" within my context. Good work! :)
