Published:

Abstract

The Mexican Ridges underlie almost all of the western Gulf of Mexico south of the Rio Grande. The southern half of the ridges has been studied in the most detail, resulting in subdivision into two zones-4a and 4b (fig. 1). The reader is referred to unit 27 for a discussion of the tectonic setting of fold and thrust zones on divergent continental margins.
