Combined stratigraphic and isotopic studies of Triassic strata, Cuyo Basin, Argentine Precordillera

Avila, Janaina N.; Chemale, Farid Jr.; Mallmann, Guilherme; Kawashita, K.; Armstrong, Richard


The evolution of the Triassic-Cretaceous Cuyo Basin, located in the Andean Precordillera (NW Argentina), was mainly controlled by extensional-transtensional tectonics along NW-trending structures inherited from Paleozoic sutures. Stratigraphic and isotopic studies are herein presented in order to constrain the sedimentary infilling and source areas, as well as the age of Triassic strata related to the active faulted margin of the Cacheuta sub-basin. The whole stratigraphic package of the Cuyo...[Show more]
