... margin of Costa Rica, structural inversion of forearc (Terraba) and backarc (Limon) basins, arching of on- and offshore acoustic basement in a direction parallel to plate convergence between Costa Rica and the Cocos plate, and a radial stress pattern around the underthrust area of the Cocos Ridge...

Cupper Abstract Along the Middle America Trench in southern Costa Rica, flat slab subduction of the aseismic Cocos Ridge has uplifted and exposed the outer forearc, shortened the Térraba forearc basin sequence in the inner forearc...

... ). The Tertiary stratigraphy around Barú Volcano closely resembles the Térraba Basin sequence of the central Fila Costeña thrust belt, but there is a systematic thinning of each of the units to the southeast when compared to the type section ( Phillips, 1983 ). Due to poor exposure, we do not differentiate...

... conditions. Thus, careful analysis of these strata is critical for reconstructing the complicated geological histories of volcanic-arc depocenters. Significant petroleum accumulations are also stored in carbonate reservoirs in some volcanic-arc depocenters (e.g., Indonesia backarc basin; Sharaf et al., 2005...

... of Honduras ( Pinet 1972 ). When Maya–Chortís offset is removed, they lie next to the Chiapas salt basin of southern Maya. ‘Volcanoes’ (or diapirs?) occur throughout the area of the Lower Nicaragua Rise, with some showing Neogene–Recent activity ( Holcombe et al. 1990 ). A series of regularly spaced knolls...

... shallower as the island-arc archipelago developed, and some (like the Terraba forearc and southern Limon backarc basins) were inverted by rapid uplift in the Talamanca region to form areas of strong positive relief ( Kolarsky et al., 1995 ). As a result of these progressive interactions, by the late Miocene...

Holocene marine terraces in coastal exposures across the seamount-dominated segment of the Middle American Trench provide constraints on late Holocene surface uplift. For example, to the west of the village...
