Abstract

This paper deals with palaeoenvironmental analysis of the travertine deposits of Rio Blanco (Soria) and Priego (Cuenca). Geomorphological and sedimentological studies, as well as stable isotope analysis and Uranium/Thorium and Amino Acid Racemization dating have made it possible to determine that the Rio Blanco deposits are of Lower (?)-Middle Pleistocene and Upper Pleistocene age, showing predominantly lacustrine and barrier-cascade-backfilling environmental conditions respectively, this suggesting late capture by the Jalon river. The Priego deposits are of Cromer, Eem and Late-Postglacial age. Paleobotany and amino acid racemization patterns indicate humid and temperate climate conditions during the Cromer.
