..., the major, rapid uplift (around 0.5–1.5 mm/y) occurred after the deformation. Also, uplift occurred earlier in the Rocas Verdes block than in the Cordillera Darwin block, the latter having experienced a greater net uplift since the mid-Cretaceous. The major, post-tectonic uplift of the Cordillera Darwin...

This terrane extends along the axis of the island and forms a complex syncline from Bahia Honda to Oriente that today separates the north-central terrane from the southwestern terrane. The contacts between the three terranes are always of a tectonic nature. This terrane...
