Extensive dextral strike-slip faults parallel the north-trending coast line throughout most of northern Chile. A conjugate sinistral set strikes east to northeast and is particularly evident north of Iquique. Here the system rotates, so that the dextral faults trend northwest parallel to the Peruvian coast. Evidence of Recent activity decreases markedly inland.
