One recent project, Caribbean–North American Plate Boundary Analysis: From Beata Ridge (Dominican Republic) to Anegada
Passage (Lesser Antilles) (CARIBENORTE), has conducted onshore and offshore surveys in the Dominican Republic
region to study subduction, strike- slip, and collision processes in this area. This survey included a cruise aboard the Spanish R/V Hespérides in April 2009 and simultaneous fieldwork onshore. The CARIBE NORTE project complements the study of the northeastern Caribbean plate
boundary carried out during the Structure and Geodynamics of the Northeastern Boundary of the Caribbean Plate: Puerto
Rico (GEOPRICO- DO) project in 2005 [Carbó et al., 2005].
