... Abstract Rosenfeld and Pindell (2002 , 2003 ) hypothesized that late Paleocene-early Eocene docking of the northward migrating Caribbean Plate blocked the 200 km strait between the Florida/Bahamas Block and Yucatan, thereby isolating the Gulf of Mexico from the world ocean (Fig. 1...

...RICHARD B. ARONSON; WILLIAM F. PRECHT Beginning with Ken Mesolella's work in Barbados in the 1960s, paleoecological analyses have revealed that, despite large fluctuations in sea level during the Pleistocene, the composition of Caribbean coral assemblages remained stable and predictable within...

... Abstract We present an updated synthesis of the widely accepted ‘single-arc Pacific-origin’ and ‘Yucatán-rotation’ models for Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico evolution, respectively. Fourteen palaeogeographic maps through time integrate new concepts and alterations to earlier models. Pre-Aptian...

... This paper describes the results of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) appraisal of direct and indirect damages caused by the January and February 2001 El Salvador earthquakes. The appraisal provided the basis for a meeting held in Madrid in March...

... invoke a Palaeogene phase of inter-American convergence, followed by diachronous dextral oblique collision with the Caribbean Plate, becoming strongly transcurrent in the Late Miocene. Heavy mineral analysis of Cretaceous to Pleistocene rocks from eastern Venezuela, Barbados and Trinidad allow us...

... Abstract The ‘Caribbean oblique collision model’ invokes a three-stage evolution for Ecuador–Colombia–Venezuela–Trinidad: (1) Jurassic rifting; (2) Oxfordian–Neogene passive margin subsidence beside the spreading (until Campanian) Proto-Caribbean Ocean; (3) Campanian to Miocene oblique...

... of the Caribbean plate. In this study, we integrate bathymetric maps, potential field data, and high-resolution, two-dimensional (2-D) seismic lines to understand the crustal structure, tectonic history, and tectonic origin of the SAR, which is one of the active areas within the otherwise stable Caribbean plate...

... Abstract 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...

... An example of increased confidence in Atlantic opening history pertains to the size and shape of the proto-Caribbean region through time. We now know that several Caribbean arc complexes ( e.g ., Cuba) record subduction back to about 133 Ma (Rojas et al ., 2011; Krebs et al ., 2011 ), predating...

... events. The Cretaceous geology of Aruba and Curaçao consists of a mafic igneous complex, long interpreted to represent exposures of the Caribbean-Colombian Oceanic Plateau (CCOP), intruded by 89–86 Ma arc-related plutons and dikes. The rocks on both islands that are interpreted as remnants of the CCOP...

...) The Lower Magdalena Valley basin represents the former marginal trench where it evolved into today’s forearc basins and fringing accretionary fold belts ( e.g. , San Jacinto, Sinú belts), which extend offshore into the Caribbean; (4) Farther north, the boundary between autochthonous South American basement...

... The American margins of the Caribbean comprise basins and accreted terranes recording a polyphase tectonic history. Plate kinematic models and reconstructions back to the Jurassic show that Mesozoic separation of the Americas produced passive margins that were overridden diachronously from west...

...J. Wyatt Durham Abstract Sykes et al. have demonstrated that the Caribbean plate has moved east-northeast about 1400 km since late Eocene time (38 Ma). This movement changes or affects the interpretation of many biogeographic problems of that region. For example, Woodring's 1965 “Middle Miocene...
