Andean Tectonics


Add your own review!

Overview

Andean Tectonics addresses the geological evolution of the Andes Mountains, the prime global example of subduction-related mountain building. The Andes forms one of the most extensive mountain belts on Earth, spanning approximately an 8,000 km distance along the western edge of South America, from ~10 DegreesN to ~55 DegreesS. The tectonic history of the Andes involves a rich record of diverse geological processes, including crustal deformation, magmatism, sedimentary basin evolution, and climatic interactions. This book addresses the range of Andean tectonic processes and their temporal and spatial variations. This critical resource is ideal for researchers interested in the causes and consequences of Andean-type orogenesis and the long-term evolution of fold-thrust belts, magmatic arcs, and forearc and foreland basins.

Author Information

Dr. Horton is the Alexander Deussen Professor of Energy Resources at The University of Texas at Austin and has a joint appointment with the Department of Geological Sciences and Institute for Geophysics in the Jackson School of Geosciences. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 1998. His research addresses tectonics of sedimentary basins, evolution of orogenic systems, sediment provenance, and nonmarine depositional processes. Andres Folguera is a Research Scientist (Investigador Principal) and Professor with CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council) and the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Facultad de Ciencis Exactas y Naturales, where he has an appointment with the Departamento de Ciencias Geologicas, Instituto de Estudios Andinos, Laboratorio de Geodinamica. His research focuses on the tectonics, structure, magmatism, geomorphology and neotectonics of the central and southern Andes, particularly for the last 100 million years of their evolution.
