Sketch on the structural geology and vulcanism in the Central High Plateau of the Bolivian AndesThe author has identified the following significant results. The Earth Resources Technology Satellite Program has as an objective the development of tectonic maps for Bolivia. Maps were prepared using the images of ERTS-1 in a preliminary study of alignments observed and rapidly interpreted in images 1010-14033-3-4-5-6-7 on a scale of 1:1,000,000, and later verified on the ground with corresponding fault zones. This information was not shown on existing geologial maps. The ERTS-1 imagery was used in volcanology research for drawing the regional limits of volcanic formations as soon as the alignment and the extent of the volcanoes could be determined. The extensive coverage of ERTS-1 images provides an excellent opportunity for developing studies of regional structures.
