Title Analysis of sedimentary basins on the example of formations of eastern Cuba
Author Nicolas Vega Garriga, Yamina Rios Martinez
Abstract
The analysis of ancient sedimentary basins of Eastern Cuba region is shown from the point of view of the Tectonics of Plates conception, for didactic purposes. The WILSON cycles, the “Model Basin” classification proposed by MIALL and the peculiarities of lithostratigraphic and lithodemic units from the Cuban Stratigraphic Code are taken as reference. In the Eastern Cuba region there existed basins related to the divergent margin of Oxfordian – Maastrichtian age and basins related to the convergent margins of Tithonian – Lower Paleocene and of Lower Paleocene – Upper Eocene age. Basins were generated during the process of continental collision and suturing in the Upper Paleocene – Middle Eocene interval and they were associated with transform plate margins and megashears in the Middle Eocene – Quaternary interval. Illustrative tables show the used methodology for the basin analysis as well as an ideal scheme of 
the evolution of the same ones.
