The island of Hispaniola straddles the active left-lateral strike-slip zone separating the North America and Caribbean plates.

The Caribbean-North American plate boundary is an example of an island arc-continent collisional boundary that experienced along-strike changes in the nature of the colliding margins and obliqueness of the collision that created profound changes through out its tectonic history (Fig. 1A; Pindell et al.,Pindell et al., ).The island arc collided with buoyant terranes during the Cited by: 7.

The approximately 80 million year old Caribbean Plate is roughly rectangular, and it slides eastward at about two centimeters/year relative to the North American Plate.

Motion along its northern boundary (in the plate boundary zone region) is dominantly strike-slip (sideways motion between the plates), with a small component of subduction (one.

The Caribbean Plate’s most characteristic feature is the active volcanic arc, the Lesser Antilles, which lies along the eastern boundary of the is connected to a wider arc system, including the Aves Ridge (Figure 1), which is a remnant arc, and the Grenada back-arc basin, located between the Aves Ridge and the Lesser Antilles (Bouysse et al., ).

Marine geophysical data including Seabeam, seismic reflection, magnetics, gravimetry and side-scan sonar have been recently collected along the northern Caribbean strike-slip plate boundary between Cuba and Hispaniola, in the Windward Passage area.

The analysis of this comprehensive data set allows us to illustrate active strike-slip tectonic processes in relation to the Cited by:   This motion is accommodated by strike-slip boundaries in the northern and southeastern Caribbean (Fig. 1 B; Burke et al., ). The northern strike-slip dominated plate boundary consists of a complex mosaic of plate fragments bounded by a spreading center, two strike-slip systems, and two subduction/underthrusting systems (Fig.
