Abstract

Quaternary faulting and coastal uplift characterize the rifted margin of Baja California near Loreto. This study seeks to document the rate of uplift of the Loreto basin and the history of Quaternary faulting on the Loreto fault. To determine the rate of uplift, the AA. examine the coastal uplift of the Loreto basin indicated by the altitudinal distribution of marine terraces. Evidence of Quaternary movement on the Loreto fault consists of morphologically young fault scarps and surfaces such as fluvial terraces that are displaced by recurrent faulting
