Abstract

This paper focuses on a regional reconnaissance to identify possible associations between the geometry of the subduction zone and regional physiography by analysing selected areas from the coastal zone along the strike of the Mexican subduction zone. Landscape associations within tectonic domains are described. This study covers the continental margin onshore from Jalisco to Tehuantepec. The Tehuantepec isthmus area, characterised by the triple junction of Cocos, North American, and Caribbean plates, divides the major tectonic provinces and subduction zone to the northwest and southeast
