Abstract

A paleomagnetic study was performed in the Lima region from 39 reliable sampling positions of 55 middle Cretaceous to late Miocene samples distributed through three NE-WS transverse lines cutting the Western Cordillera of Central Andes. For the entire area studied, all the paleomagnetic declinations measured are invariable and systematically deviate to the West. This confirms the existence of a counterclockwise rotation of the entire Occidental Cordillera. -from English summary
