Description :
The AA. reconsider features described as neotectonic in origin, especially the correspondence between these features, the distribution and characteristics of seismic activity, and the local morphology (fault scarps, hydrographic markers). The AA. also question neotectonic interpretations that have been proposed in the literature for some landforms located outside seismic areas. The objective is to form a preliminary assessment of the morphological effects of neotectonics in the study area by distinguishing them, if possible, from those of long-term morphotectonic evolution, i.e., since the Cretaceous.
