Short summary
The Ebro and Duero basins share a very common geological history. However, since the late Miocene, the Ebro basin has recorded important unfilling and excavation, whereas the Duero basin has only recorded limited incision and is considered to be still almost endorheic. Such a morphologic contrast led to important drainage reorganization and divide migration toward the Duero basin. Drainage area loss results in the lowering of the incision capacity of the Duero River, increasing this contrast.
