Abstract

Spatial variations of Quaternary deformation and tectonic activity of faults along the Acambay graben are assessed using geomorphic and morphometric approaches in the study of the fault-generated mountain fronts and fluvial systems. Continuing tectonic activity in the Acambay graben is confirmed by recent well documented seismic episodes. The results of this analysis can be applied for earthquake hazard reduction
