A comprehensive suite of field surveys was carried out by a team of Italian and Argentinean scientists in South America's Tierra del Fuego region to investigate the 600-km-long Magallanes-Fagnano fault system (MFS), a transform-type margin that developed on continental crust (Figure 1). Identifying and analyzing the morphological and structural elements related to the MFS and understanding mechanisms of slip along the fault are the principal objectives of an ongoing project called Tectonic Evolution of the South America-Scotia Plate Boundary During the Cenozoic (TESAC).
