The Mediterranean Region represents a complex mosaic of continental, microcontinental and ophiolitic terranes, whose overall evolution has been controlled by relative movements between the African and Eurasian plates. Covers the full width of the Mediterranean basin and presents results from Permian to Quaternary rocks, providing a snap-shot of the current state of palaeomagnetic research in the Mediterranean region.
