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 (sH=s1) and/or an ENE-WSW minimum (s h=s3 or s2) horizontal stress. Stress inversion appli...

... The Maracaibo block is bounded to the west by the left-lateral Bucaramanga-Santa Marta Fault (BSMF) whose slip rates are estimated less than 0.2 mm/yr and 3 mm/yr along the northern and southern segments, respectively (Paris et al., 2000;Jimenez et al., 2015;Diederix et al., 2009). The Bonaire block is separated from the Maracaibo block by the dextral Oca Fault with a slip rate between 0.2 mm/yr to 2 mm/yr (Paris et al., 2000;Audemard et al., 2006). In our definition of the Macondo block, we use the velocities of VDPR and BOBG sites located in the aforementioned Maracaibo block (See Fig. S1). ...
... The red lines mark the limits of the major surface structures following the classification of Urbani (2017). A simplified distribution of the Quaternary fault system are marked in yellow lines (modified from Audemard et al. 2006). The blue line indicates the location of the MT profile. ...
