Three fault systems were responsible for Permian to Late Cretaceous deformation of the overriding plate of the Andean convergent margin in the Coastal Cordillera of northern Chile (258309 to 278009S). Displacements were linked to crustal growth expressed by the emplacement of a sequence of magmatic arcs. The Tigrillo Fault System, active from Triassic to Early Cretaceous time, was characterized by arc-normal extension with increasing left-oblique extension (transtension) from Early Jurassic to… CONTINUE READING
