The offshore South Caribbean deformed belt (SCDB) is a 100-km-wide (62 mi), late Cenozoic sedimentary accretionary prism formed where the Caribbean plate is obliquely subducted beneath northern South America. Progradation of deltaic deposits of the 1500-km-long (932 mi) Magdalena River over the SCDB and tectonic deformation of the deltaic sedimentary rocks has created one of the youngest (last 10 Ma) and thickest (5–18 km [3–5 mi]) accretionary prisms in the world. We use three types of data (deep-penetration, seismic-reflection profiles, gravity modeling collinear with the seismic lines, and structural restorations) to describe the late Miocene to Recent thrust kinematics...
