GSA Bulletin (2018) 130 (3-4): 355–380.
.... This fault-bounded triangular northernmost promontory of the Northern Andes exposes Precambrian to Paleozoic metamorphic rocks and a Triassic to Jurassic magmatic arc. We examined the Neogene basin fills of two marginal basins, a western one located along the Santa MartaBucaramanga fault, and a northern one...

.... The triangular Sierra Nevada massif is bounded by the Oca fault, Santa MartaBucaramanga fault, and Cesar lineament. During the Tertiary, dextral and sinistral movement of 65 and 110 km, respectively, occurred along the Oca and Santa MartaBucaramanga faults; subsequently, several thousand meters of uplift...

..., as has been suggested for the Santa Marta (= Bucaramanga) fault and for many faults in the Caribbean area. A rather narrow strip in the central part of the chain, between the two massifs shows a more tightly folded structure. The sedimentary cover shows different reactions to basement tectonics: (1...

... of the lithospheric structure of northern South America as far west as the Boconó Fault. Development of the Boconó and Santa Marta-Bucaramanga faults has added an additional layer of tectonic complexity in western Venezuela in the past ~10-20 m.y. that overprints, but does not completely destroy, the effects...
