About this book

Andean Tectonics addresses the geologic evolution of the Andes Mountains, the prime global example of subduction-related mountain building. The Andes Mountains form one of the most extensive orogenic belts on Earth, spanning approximately an 8,000-km distance along the western edge of South America, from ~10°N to ~55°S. The tectonic history of the Andes involves a rich record of diverse geological processes, including crustal deformation, magmatism, sedimentary basin evolution, and climatic interactions. Andean Tectonics addresses the range of Andean tectonic processes and their temporal and spatial variations. An improved understanding of these processes is fundamental not only to the Andes but also to other major orogenic systems associated with subduction of the oceanic lithosphere.

Andean Tectonics is a critical resource 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.

Contents

5. Thermochronological constraints on Cenozoic exhumation along the southern Caribbean: The Santa Marta range, northern Colombia
6. Discriminating mechanisms for coarse clastic progradation in the Colombian foreland basin using detrital zircon double-dating
7. Latest Triassic to Early Cretaceous tectonics of the Northern Andes: Geochronology, geochemistry, isotopic tracing and thermochronology
8. Late Cretaceous to Miocene stratigraphy and provenance of the coastal forearc and Western Cordillera of Ecuador: Evidence for accretion of a single oceanic plateau fragment
9. Provenance and geochronological insights into Late Cretaceous-Cenozoic foreland basin development in the Subandean Zone and Oriente Basin of Ecuador
10. Sediment provenance variations during contrasting Mesozoic-early Cenozoic tectonic regimes of the northern Peruvian Andes and Santiago-Marañón foreland basin

Central Andes
11. Western thrusting and uplift in northern Central Andes (western Peruvian margin)
12. Structural controls along the Peruvian Subandes
13. Provenance and recycling of detrital zircons from Cenozoic Altiplano strata and the crustal evolution of western South America from combined U-Pb and Lu-Hf isotopic analysis

Biography

Brian 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. His research addresses the tectonics of sedimentary basins, evolution of orogenic systems, sediment provenance, and nonmarine depositional processes.

Andrés Folguera is a professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Buenos Aires and a research scientist with CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council). 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.
