... followed by Quaternary deformation and uplift. On the Burica Peninsula, an approximately 3,000-m-thick, Pliocene-Pleistocene clastic sedimentary sequence, characterized by fine-grained turbidite deposits and volumetrically minor coarser-grained channel-fill, slump, and debris-flow deposits, bears depth...

... Mélange (originally defined as the ‘Osa Caño Accretionary Complex’ by Di Marco 1994 ) (Fig.  2 ). We first propose here that the Osa Igneous Complex is not limited to the Osa Peninsula but extends toward the SE in the Burica Peninsula and, possibly, islands in the Montijo Gulf (western Panama...

... on either side of the northeast-southwest-trending axis of a structural arch that formed from subduction of the Cocos Ridge beneath the Costa Rica-Panama arc complex. Uplift caused by Cocos Ridge subduction began on the southern margin of the arc complex at Burica Peninsula ∼3.6 Ma, and relatively little...

... region and extends into Panama to the Azuero Peninsula. The Late Cretaceous basement of the terrane is thought to have formed a marginal piece of the Caribbean oceanic plateau, transported northward by strike slip along the rim of the Caribbean plate. The Burica Terrane forms the Burica Peninsula...

... uplift and arcward tilting of coastal deposits is present adjacent to subducting seamounts. In contrast, inboard of the underthrusting aseismic Cocos Ridge, along the ~160-km-long Fila Costeña domain between Quepos and the Burica Peninsula, mesoscale fault populations record active shortening related...

... beneath the Caribbean plate at the Middle America Trench. From the Península de Nicoya south-eastward toward the Península de Osa and the Península de Burica on the Panamanian border, the Middle America Trench loses its physiographic expression where it intersects the aseismic Cocos Ridge.

Exposed in northern Costa Rica, the plateau remnants of the Nicoya Peninsula originated from a Jurassic oceanic crust over-thickened by Early and Late Cretaceous hotspots. These sheared-off pieces of the Farallon Plate testify to the early tectonic interaction of the Caribbean...
