Normal faults with decametric throw displace the entire peneplain (from the S to the N of the eastern part of the island along a distance of 180 km): they subdivide it in smaller flat surfaces (Vardabasso, 1959) with very different elevations (300 to 900 a.
At Playa Naranjo, along 1 km of coastal cliffs, occurs a complex association of tectonic and sedimentary breccias: (i) a tectonic breccia made of blocks of dolerites and serpentinites in a crushed serpentinic matrix; (ii) a decametric block of serpentinite with anastomozed dykes of pegmatitic pyroxenites; (iii) a sedimentary breccia which consists of serpentinitic blocks within pelagic limestones; (iv) a block of well stratified sandstones and conglomerates and (v) a breccia made of igneous pebbles in a sandy matrix that are similar to the rocks of the Bahia Nancite layered complex (cumulates, gabbros, plagiogranites and olivine basalts).
Mr Lashley talked in some detail about decametric radio emission from Jupiter, its detection and periodic activity which varies in line with system III longitude (the solid body rotation of Jupiter).
On either slope of the northern part of the Puerto Nuevo Canyon, as well as of the valley of Arroyo San Cristobal, metric to decametric sized bodies of plagiogranite (mostly trondhjemite : oligoclase-andesine, quartz, biotite, amphibole) are found within the peridotites.
