Sierra de Alcubierre y Monegros (HUESCA-ZARAGOZA). El Patrimonio Geolgico Aragones.



SITUACION GEOGRAFICA:

Desde Perdiguera, a la cual se llega por la carretera regional 129 desde Zaragoza (poco ms de 25 Km), se puede tomar una pista hacia el Este que, tras un recorrido de unos 13 Km, nos deja al pie de Monte Oscuro, una de las mayores altitudes de la sierra (812 m.s.n.m.), en cuya cima hay un radar meteorolgico. La corta ascensin al mismo (unos 45 min) nos ofrece una buena panormica general.

CONTENIDO:

Area subdesrtica tpica en pleno centro de la derpesin geolgica del Ebro. La sierra de Alcubierre conforma una verdadera espina dorsal E-W dentro del rido paisaje de los Monegros. La cuenca sedimentaria del Ebro, de edad terciaria, muestra aqu una serie de formaciones carbonatadas y dentrticas que, subhorizontales, se corresponden con un aparato sedimentario lacustre (de lago) de enorme extensin, apenas alterado por accidentes tectnicos (pliegues y fallas). Los agentes naturales externos (agua y viento fundamentalmente) han configurado un paisaje de lomas, pequeos relieves tabulares, reas llanas a veces endorreicas (de drenaje cerrado), barrancos y crcavas y tpicos valles de fondo plano, sin cauces definidos.

Se distingue hacia el Norte, en la distancia, las sierras del prepirineo aragons.
