The project, known as BOLIVAR in the U.S. and GEODINOS in Venezuela, included offshore reflection, onshore-offshore wide-angle reflection/refraction profiling, teleseismic body and surface wave tomography, structural geology, and geochemistry. The various types of seismic imaging of the crust and upper mantle in northern South America provide a number of important constraints on the evolution of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary, and identify substantial modifications to crust and upper mantle structure of coastal South...
