dc.description.abstractThe Pleistocene sediments deposited on the emerged marine abrasion platform near Canero village (Valdés, Asturias) are truncated by reverse faults which are parallel to basement bedding. These structures imply a neotectonic activity with a NW-SE maximum compressive stress, consistent with recent fault population analysis and current seismicity studies. The described deformation corresponds to a reactivation of folds in the Palaeozoic basement through a flexural slip mechanism, with the subsequent accommodation of the unconformable Pleistocene coveren_US
