... a correction that considers the fault’s strike, but not its actual position. These modifications were tested with three earthquakes: the 1989 Loma Prieta; a 1980 M w 5.2 event in Táchira, Venezuela; and the 1967 earthquake in Caracas, M w 6.6. The third one was important for the interpretation of the 1812...

As several major historical earthquakes (1610, 1812, 1849, 1894, 1932) were related to the Boconó Fault after the pioneering work of Rod [1956] , striking geomorphologic features (especially offsets of moraine complexes and colluvia, sagponds) were analyzed...
