Abstract [en]

Studies a ca. 170 km long traverse running from the Pacific coast of Nicaragua in the west to the Nicaraguan Highland in the east. This part of Nicaragua is characterized by sedimentary rocks of the Pacific Coastal Plain, separated from the Tertiary volcanic rocks of the Highland by the NW-SE-trending Nicaraguan Depression. The purpose of this study is to provide electric conductivity and density constraints on geological crustal structures along the transect. This may then serve as a base for the understanding of the tectonic evolution of this part of Central America. Questions to be answered are: (1) is the Pacific coastal province an accreted terrane? (2) What is the character of the depression? Is this a hidden contact between an accreted terrane and the continental Chortis block? (3) If so, is there a different physical signature for the crust of the Pacific province compared to that of the Highlands?
