dc.description Preprint of a paper to be read at the sixth Caribbean Geological Conference, Margarita Island, Venezuela, July 1971
dc.description.abstract The distribution of earthquakes in the Caribbean region closely follows the Greater and Lesser Antillean island chain and the coast of Venezuela. This zone is interpreted as one of differential movement between two separate plates of lithosphere, the first beneath the Caribbean sea, i,e. enclosed by tectonic belt, and the second including the American continents and the western half of the Atlantic ocean.
