Describes the geological history and tectonic evolution of a mega fold belt in North America. This fold belt shows features not commonly observed in orogens generated by plate tectonics. Thus it gives insight into an orogen that is basically controlled by continental tectonics.
Introduction.- Governing Principles in Regional Tectonic Evolution.- Rock Units in Regional Tectonic Analysis.- Conceptual Fundamentals of Regional Tectonic Analysis on Continents.- View of the Cordilleran Mobile Megabelt's Evolution from the Craton.- Omineca Orogenic Belt as Tectonotype of the Eastern Cordilleran Miogeosyncline.- Broad Look at Geodynamical Mechanisms of Crustal Restructuring in the Cordilleran Orogens and Median Massifs.- Lessons from Cordilleran Geology for the Methodology of Regional Tectonic Analysis of Mobile Megabelts.- Practical Utility of Rock Evidence and Geophysical Studies in Restoring Regional Tectonic History in Mobile Megabelts.
