Tectonic geomorphology

Description :
This paper intends to present observations of geomorphic and geologic evidence in the Eastern Andan foothills of Colombia and Venezuela, where a well-developed-fold-and-thrust belt is currently growing. In this type of tectonic setting, the analysis of drainage has proved to be a powerful tool because drainage system are highly sensitive to slow vertical tectonic processes related to subtle folding and thrust faulting.
