Document title

A reconnaissance study of the morphotectonics of the Mexican subduction zone

published at : Tectonic geomorphology

Abstract

Field observation combined with remote sensing, employing both Landsat images and aerial photographs, and the analysis of topographic, geomorphological and geological maps show that the regional contrasts in seismicity and associated tectonic activity are reflected in differences in morphology along the coast. Six distinct morphotectonic zones are identified on the basis of their correlation with regional tectonics and areas of differing levels of seimicity. A range of geomorphological evidence, including marine and river terraces, uplifted coastal notches and elevated wave-cut platforms indicates active tectonic uplift along the margin
