Ayala, C., Rubio, F. M., Rey-Moral, C., Pueyo, E. L., Clariana, P., Soto, R., Casas, A. M., Román, T., Berdiel, & Martí, Y. J. (2020). New gravity data in the Central Pyrenees (NE Spain) . Geogaceta, 67, 103–106.
The GeoPiri3D project aims to characterize the geometry and kinematics of the Permo-Carboniferous batholiths of the Central Pyrenees through a combination of potential fields and structural data. During 2018 we have acquired 824 new gravity stations and 186 rock samples. The gravity data were processed and integrated into the IGME database and a new Bouguer anomaly was calculated. The two main granite bodies (La Maladeta and Andorra-Mount Louis) provide different gravimetric responses. The anomaly on the La Maladeta granite outcrop presents a zonation with small variations in its amplitude. The petrophysical data provide an average density of ca. 2.6 g/cm3, which is consistent with its granodioritic composition. The outcrop of the Andorra-Mount Louis pluton is characterized by a relative minimum, suggesting a dominant granitic composition. In addition, the minimum extends in an oblique NE direction indicating that part of the pluton is buried. The relative minimum to the SW of La Maladeta is probably linked to accumulations of Triassic evaporites.
