... The paleomagnetism of 150 oriented hand samples (32 sites) of volcanic, red bed, and dike rocks, constituting the La Quinta Formation in the Perijá Range of Venezuela, has been studied. After demagnetization, consistent vectors from volcanic rocks and red beds are bipolar but show considerable...

Basement-involved southeast-dipping reverse faults expose Jurassic to early Cretaceous rocks in the CRB and Paleozoic rocks in the Perija range (PR) east of the CRB. About 10% of shortening across the CRB is a consequence of motion along...

The simplest interpretation of these data calls for a ˜50° clockwise rotation of the entire Perijá Range. Using the southern end of the Perijá Mountains as the point of rotation would make...
