Origin of the Yaracuy basin, Bocono-Moron fault system, Venezuela

Auteur :
SCHUBERT, C.

Description :
The Yaracuy basin is a tectonic depression within an echelon stepover in the Bocono-Moron-El Pilar fault system. This basin is interpreted as a pull-apart basin formed by right-lateral offset along this fault system. The right-lateral offset necessary for the formation of the basin and its present dimensions is 50 to 60 km| this figure is consistent with estimates of a total late Tertiary-Quaternary right-lateral offset of 100 to 125 km along the Bocono-Moron-El Pilar fault system, which is part of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary.
