... Abstract Plate boundary forces acting within the Cocos Plate that is being subducted at a rate of 8.5–9.0 cm a −1 towards N32°E below the Caribbean Plate and the Panama microplate are found responsible for contemporaneous superimposed compressive, wrench and extensive fault patterns in Central...

... and reported with a magnitude ( M w ) of 6.4 and a strike-slip mechanism with a large normal dip-slip motion. This mechanism agrees with mapped faults in the area that suggest transtensional deformation on the forearc and the entire western boundary of the Panama microplate. Aftershock locations do...

... Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements suggest the existence of a rigid Panama-Costa Rica microplate that is moving northward relative to the stable Caribbean plate. Northward motion of Central America relative to the Caribbean plate is independently suggested by the April 1991 Costa Rica...

The central portion of the Panamá block (Figs.  1 and 2 ) is commonly described as a nondeforming microplate (e.g., Trenkamp et al. , 2002 ; Bird, 2003 ; Argus et al. , 2011 ). However, appreciable Pleistocene crustal...

The Caribbean Plate has a relative eastward motion with respect to the South American and North American plates. This active backarc tectonic setting of the Panama Microplate is a result of its intersection with the surrounding...
