Abstract

Integration of landform and structural analysis allowed the identification of Late Pleistocene-Holocene pulses of tectonic activity in the Campos do Jordão Plateau with ages and regimes similar to the ones from the continental rift. Recognition of these tectonic pulses as well as of their effects in landform development, particularly clear on the Campos de São Francisco at the highest area of the SE edge of the plateau, show that besides the climate-related Quaternary environmental changes significant neotectonic instability should be considered in the geomorphic evolution of the Campos do Jordão Plateau
