TAMEZ PONCE, Antonio et al. Tectonic traits of the La Popa Basin and the neighboring structures, NE Mexico,after potential geophysic fields. Bol. Soc. Geol. Mex [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.2, pp.271-284. ISSN 1405-3322.
In this work, the integral analysis of gravity and aeromagnetic data in the La Popa Basin and the adjacent geologic structures is presented. The analysis was complemented with a Digital Model of Elevations that, combined with the review of previous geological studies, served to compare the surface structures and basement blocks in the study area. The most important tectonic blocks were distinguished and finally two 2.5D geological-geophysical models were developed. These models represent in a general way the most important structural characteristics of the northeast of Mexico.
