The national territory occupying the western part of the island of Hispaniola covers a third of the island’s area and is divided by several mountain ranges running from northwest to southeast and west to east, which belong to the Fold Mountains of the American Cordilleras and consist of volcanic rocks and Cretaceous sediments. The Massif du Nord (up to 1,090 m above sea level), which continues in the northwestern peninsula, is preceded by a coastal plain (Plaine du Nord) in the north and a high basin (Plateau Central) in the south. To the south, beyond the Montagnes Noires (up to 1,572 m above sea level) follows that of the Artibonite level flowing through. South of the Chaîne des Matheux and Montagnes du Trou d’Eau mountain ranges is the Cul-de-Sac plain with the Étang Saumâtre (salt lake). The Massif de la Selle (up to 2,680 m above sea level) joins the Caribbean Sea and the Massif de la Hotte (up to 2,347 m above sea level) on the southwestern peninsula.

Haiti lies on two tectonic plates that move in opposite directions. The Septentrional Fissure, which forms part of the border between the Caribbean and North American tectonic plates, runs along the north coast, while the Enriquillo Plantain Fault stretches under the Tiburon Peninsula to the south. In addition, there are diagonal connections between the two fault lines under Haiti’s ground. As a result, there were two severe earthquakes in Haiti as early as 1751 and 1770; On January 12, 2010, there was an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale, the epicenter of which was about 16 km southwest of Port-au-Prince. The quake killed up to 300,000 people and the entire infrastructure of the country collapsed.
