Abstract

A new 1:50,000 geological map of the Mejillones Peninsula (northern Chile) displays relationships between the various Neogene units present. The Neogene evolution of the peninsula, reconstructed on the basis of distribution of these units, suggests a complex interplay between sea-level changes and tectonics and indicates that basin-bounding faults propagate from north to south.
