Short summary
We present the interpretation of deep seismic reflection profile ESCIN-2 across the boundary between the Cantabrian Mountains and the Cenozoic Duero Basin (NW Spain). 2-D seismic modelling allowed us to construct a N-S geological cross section which is compatible with the rest of the geophysical data. This profile shows the importance of the N-S Alpine deformation. A wedge of Cantabrian margin crust indented southwards into the delaminated Iberian crust, forcing its northward subduction.
