Estudio morfoestructural de Cuba

Pages 49-69


In the work is exposed a methodology for the morphostructural classification of the Cuban archipelago in the complex and dynamical context of the lithospheric plates of the Caribbean, Northamerican, Cocos and Nazca. This classification, with six hierarchic levels, has the purpose of the morphostructural analysis, integral and complex of the geological, geophysical and geomorphological information. This last obtained from different methods. With its application is possible to delimit the very various and complex morphostructural spectrum of the Cuban territory, configurated in the time by the dynamic-active pair of endogenous and exogenous processes, and to prepare a map of scale 1:250.000. This material served as support to the neotectonic map. It is considered that Cuba is a morphostructure in differential ascent of first (I) order in the southern part of the geotecture (plate) of North America, compound by a various set of morphostructures of smaller order. All these units are characterized quantitatively as of the morphometric methods. The greater intensity of the neotectonic vertical movements are located in the Eastern region and in particular in the Sierra Maestra.
