Tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the Cauto-Güacanayabo Basin, Cuba.

The Cauto-Güacanayabo Basin is the largest strike-slip basin related to the Güacanayabo-Nipe tectonic corridor, located in eastern Cuba. The Cauto-Güacanayabo Basin started at Middle Eocene times and most of the basin re-mains active. It is limited by both, extensive and compressive faults related to transtensional and transpressional tec-tonics. Although both could appear closely and be coetaneous, there are a rough arrangement in the fault orientation and distribution across the basin. In general terms transpressional faults strike in a NE-SW to ENE-WSW direction and are dominant in the southern part of the basin, whereas transtensional faults striking a N-S to NNE-SSW direc-tion and are dominant in the northern and eastern parts of the basin. The Cauto-Güacanayabo sedimentary infill has variable thickness, reaching more than 2500 m. Four main basin-scale unconformities called U0 to U3 have been rec-ognized allowing us to subdivide the sedimentary record in four tectono-stratigraphic units called, from bottom to top, A, B, C and D.
