The Siete Cabezas and Peravillo Formations are pre-Tertiary and probably also pre-Middle Albian. The oldest dated rocks are Lower Cretaceous Middle Aptian-Middle Albian, and these occur at the base of the known Cretaceous section.

The sequence began with the extrusion of various volcanic types that constitute the Los Ranchos Formation. Acknowledgements. I thank my colleagues, Dr. José F.

The Toa Baja Drillsite is located in the North Coast basin. The Puerto Rico Trench lies approximately kilometers north of the island; the Atlantic Ocean reaches its maximum depth of 8, meters at this location.

Some time after the middle Tertiary, Puerto Rico was separated by block faulting from the other islands of the Greater Antilles, and it was arched, uplifted and tilted to the northeast. Check out the new look and enjoy easier access to your favorite features.
