Morphostructure of the Serra Do Mar, Paraná State, Brazil

The morphostructural map of the Serra do Mar in Paraná was (Main Map) made of geologic and geomorphologic data obtained from fieldwork, satellite images, topographic data and information from previous studies. Six important escarpments limited by geologic structures, eight morphostructural units and four morphostructural domains were mapped. Kinematic data and the directions of the main families of faults, interpreted using digital elevation models, permitted us to characterize morphostructures that were generated by Cenozoic deformation events superimposed over older tectonic events. In many cases, we could also identify and map neotectonic features.
