Resumen:
In this contribution we present a case study where valuable structural information on the extensional architecture of the Atuel depocenter is obtained from kinematic analysis of small-scale normal faulting. We integrated the results of kinematic analysis of minor faults with data from inferred major normal faults. We found a wide dispersion of the results obtained by the inversion method of fault-slip data, suggesting that the observed fault patterns reflect local deformations instead of responding to the regional stress field.
