The Rock of Gibraltar

The Rock of Gibraltar aerial photograph

The Rock of Gibraltar - these first 2 images are the normal photographs you will see of the the Rock of Gibraltar but the 3rd image and 4th image you wont see and they are perhaps the most important to start with. When considering the geology and gEUlogy of not just the the Rock of Gibraltar but the Bay of Gibraltar, the Gibraltar Canyon and the Alboran Sea (the very western part of the Mediterranean Sea).

What do you see? What do you sea? What don't you see? What dont you sea?

The Rock of Gibraltar is a very large monolithic limestone promontory

The southern section and tip of the Rock of Gibraltar is called Europa Point and it is so flat that it has the Cricket ground there and is called Europa Flats. The raised section above it closer to the Rock of Gibraltar is also flat. How can this land be so flat when the Rock of Gibraltar itself rises from ground so spectacularly? How can the land be left like that?

But perhaps the most interesting part of the Electric Universe geology of this section of the Rock of Gibraltar are the curved sections cut into the east side. They have been EDM'd away, evidence of gEUlogy. Notice that the upper flat section also has these curves similar to sections of "semi circular bays".

You will find these curves all along coasts. Not because of erosion but because of gEUlogy. Are the beaches their because of the sand or are the sands their because of the beaches? The west side of the Rock of Gibraltar has an amazing amount of sand piled up onto it and sloping down. How has that amount of sand got there and remained all these millions of years?

Jabal Tariq was the Moorish/Arabic name of the Rock of Gibraltar and means the Rock of Tariq

The Rock of Gibraltar is a massive limestone monolith that stands out in its local area. It is a freak of nature. Yet it can not be consider separate to the geology of the local area because in an Electric Universe they are very much linked. The geology explanation for the origin of the Rock of Gibraltar is a total guess and will always remain so.

The photo above of the Bay of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Canyon show gEUlogy evidence of what helped to form this amazing geology. The 2 rivers leading in Gibraltar Bay are part of the electrical discharge event that created what you can consider to be a crater, the bay.

How does water erode away all this land, make it very circular yet not effect land around it in the same manner? There is even a rim shot crater in the top right of the image.

Mons Calpe was the Romans name for the Rock of Gibraltar

Peñón de Gibraltar as Espania calls it

Here you can see the range of low hills, all around the area towards Tariffa the mountains and hills rise into the air, showing dentritic, lichtenberg figures typical of a large and powerful electrical discharge event.

Pillars of Hercules - the Rock of Gibraltar is said to be one of them

Geology - the Rocks of Gibraltar

Geology suggests that the Rock of Gibraltar is a fold in the earths crust as the layers and minerals it is made of are upside down. How could this happen only in this precise spot and not elsewhere? How can it happen in such a small area (3x2 miles)? So small that its postal address is Gibraltar, Gibraltar and local postage stamps were only 0.05 pence a couple of years ago.

Why does it appear to thrust out of the ground? Why is one side so vertical with lots of sand sloped up against it and the other side slopes down?

Why does it have 2 high peaks at either end and a lower curving spine joining them, similar to limestone hills in Malta? Especially when they are meant to have been formed by different processes?

And what are the odds that a puzzling "fault line" runs straight through the Rock of Gibraltar? You can see it when you do the great Siege Tunnel tours of the Rock of Gibraltar.


Azores-Gibraltar Transform Fault

The Azores-Gibraltar Transform Fault, also called the Azores-Gibraltar fault zone (AGFZ), is a major geologic fault which runs eastward from the eastern end of the Terceira Rift in the Azores, extending through the Strait of Gibraltar and into the Mediterranean Sea. It forms part of the tectonic boundary between the Eurasian Plate and the African Plate. The extension east of the Strait of Gibraltar is poorly understood and is currently regarded as a "diffuse" boundary. Somewhere in the vicinity of the Italian Peninsula, many geologists believe the fault connects with a subduction zone where the African Plate is slowly subducting beneath the Eurasian Plate.

The fault is a right lateral moving type of transform fault, moving about 4 mm (0.16 in) per year, but eastern segments of the fault show evidence of compression as well.
