In a North America reference frame, GPS velocities in Puerto Rico, St. Croix, and the Lesser Antilles indicate that these areas move as a single block in an east-northeast direction (°) at a. Department of Geology at University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez provides on-going educational opportunities to those students seeking advanced degrees.

The Mayagüez area forms the southwestern corner of Puerto Rico, west of 67° W. and south of 18° 15′ N. One-third of the square kms is covered by thick alluvium. Unconformities separate a basal complex, two sequences of highly folded igneous and sedimentary rocks, and a younger sequence of gently dipping sedimentary rock. Cabo Roio Figure 2.

The USGS, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources, is systemati­ cally mapping sediments on the shelf surrounding Puerto Rico to identify.
