What is the geoloical origin of Hispaniola?
« on: 30/06/2010 16:02:08 »
Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and right now I'm researching the geology of three Caribbean countries, Hispaniola being one of them, for my job. I'm having a lot of trouble getting information on it though and I was hoping someone here can either point me in the right direction or tell me something about it. Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!! ;)

Here is a place to start.

http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/news/pdfs/011310/Mann_etal_1991.pdf

Mann is the lead author and an excellent geologist (I mean Paul Mann...not Michael Mann).  He is the lead author, and is a faculty member of one of the finest geologic institutions the world has to offer (The University of Texas...and Im not prejudiced...hehehe).

For more info, use Google Scholar.  If there are any papers that you cannot access, post them here and I can get them for you.

There are two previous threads on this forum that have discussed the general Caribbean in context of its evolution with respect to Jamaica

These are the links:

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=16256.0

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=18769.0

You will find a very general discussion of the evolution of Hispaniola is included.
