A brief review of active faults around Mexican Ridges ,southern Gulf of Mexico
Presentation
Full-text available
I present a summary of Geological context surrrounding the Anchois Gas discovery: from geodynamics to gravitational tectonics.
Article
Full-text available
Geomorphological evidence and seismic lines along the seabed suggest the presence of an igneous intrusive body. The activity can be dated during the Quaternary, without ruling out that it continues to be active in the present. It has been preliminarily called the Tamiahua laccolith. The area is located along deep-water ofMexican ridges, at about 20...

Neogene tectonic evolution of southern Gulf of México (Campeche sub-basin) is associated to intense salt-mobilization, and it can be separated into 3 main episodes. • Late Oligocene (?) - early Miocene to middle Miocene: salt-rooted thrusts running parallel to the Paleogene Zongolica front that generated a series of northwest-southeast oriented ant...

Here we show a series of normal faults and bed-parallel slip detachments developed in pleistocene lacustrine rocks. It seems they are triggered by gravitacioanal processes.

A quick bibliographic review of an igneous center located along the Mexican Ridges, offshore Veracruz state (Kenning and Mann,2020). I would like to know more about public domain literature and if recent volcanic activity can be confirmed. I recommend to read: Elliot (1982), Ferrari et al. (2005;2012), CNH (2015) and Suárez and López (2015) and Eic...

Below a summary of key ideas discussed in my talk: Structures are simple However, we have tendency to “complicate" models.In many cases,“complex features” are multi phased structures. Geodynamics, Seismicity, GPS and Stress data help to predict tectonic processes and “Gravity driven” deformations are very common. When tectonics traps are imaged wi...

An updated analysis of Conomita Fold outcrop (Barranquin Fm.) was performed using an image of field-trip guide-book organized by PDVSA in 1993: Excursion al Frente de Montaña, Venezuela Oriental (Stop # 5). A more exhaustive structural analysis should take into account the original thicknesses of para-sequences described throughout the outcrop. A v...

The objective of this study is to evaluate deformation styles prior to the Messinian Salinity Crises (MSC) west and east of the Gibraltar Arch and to understand possible relationships between geodynamic setting, deformation styles and isostatic rebound of the Betic-Rif ranges. Regionally, the Gibraltar Arch is part of the Betic-Rif arcuate fold-thr...

In this work we present a structural analysis of two geological cross-sections across the Porcupine and Goban Spur basins located in the offshore of western Ireland. They represent a N trending Mesozoic rift complex related to the Atlantic opening. The main objective is to improve the understanding of the style of the continental rifting developed...

Varios modelos geodinámicos propuestos para la región caribeña invocan desplazamientos dextrales del orden de 1.000 kilómetros en el límite sur de la placa Caribe, por analogía con su frontera septentrional. No obstante, esta hipótesis parece dificilmente sustentable cuando se evalúa los desplazamientos acumulados a lo largo de cada uno de los acci...

The study area is located in the westernmost part of the Neogene Alborán basin. The sedimentary cover deposited above the Alborán allochthonous domain (igneous-metamorphic Palaeozoic-Mesozoic complex) ranges from early Miocene to Pleistocene. Structural styles have been defined using available regional seismic sections integrated with geological da...

Spatial configuration of Quaternary active tectonic features along the southern Caribbean plate boundary suggests that the region is subject to a compressive strike-slip (transpressional senso lato) regime, characterized by a NNW-SSE maximum horizontal stress (σH=σ1) and/or an ENE-WSW minimum (σh=σ3 or σ2) horizontal stress. Stress inversion applie...

After compiling a good number of references and being to the field, this paper suggests that right-lateral offset along Bocono fault could be around 30 kilometers. This major active fault in western Venezuela possibly started moving during Pliocene.

Se realizó una evaluación del fallamiento y deformaciones Cuaternarias a lo largo de la teminación septentrional de los andes venezolanos. El rasgo neotectónico mas importante es la falla dextral Boconó , que se puede seguir desde Guarico hasta San Felipe.Posiblemente dos "pull-aparts":Cabudare y Yaracuy.
