Neotectonic movements on a passive continental margin: Salvador region, Brazil

Abstract

In some restricted sectors of the Brazilian coast, it has been possible to demonstrate the role played by the vertical tectonic movements in shifting Quaternary shorelines. Within Todos os Santos Bay, State of Bahia, located in the Reconcavo graben, vertical movements of faulted blocks produced shifted Holocene shorelines. This neotectonism is related to the reactivation, during the Quaternary, of faults bounding the several crustal blocks which form the sedimentary basin. These deformations are not uniform throughout the basin.
