About this book

This book provides the first comprehensive overview of a complete subduction orogen, the Andes, considered to represent the "type" subduction belt on Earth. Integrating the results from a wide variety of methods it provides the most compact and highly resolved geophysical image of an active subduction orogen complimented by detailed geodetic data and a range of geological observations. This allows the derivation of a sophisticated process-oriented understanding of the mechanisms driving subduction orogeny's in their various manifestations. The results of 12 years of integrated multi-disciplinary research is presented including a DVD containing maps, geological sections, geophysical results and a data archive.

Contents

Preface.- I The big picture.- II Elements of the subduction system.- III Tectonics and surface processes - Responses to change.- IV The system at depth: Images and models.- V The Andean information system: Data, maps and movies.

Aus den Rezensionen: "! Das vorliegende Werk enthalt alle Informationen, die ein Geowissenschaftler ! erwarten kann. ! Die Ausfuhrung der Arbeit ist von ansprechender Qualitat. Nichts ist uberflussig ! Die Einzelartikel sind schlussig, die vorgestellten Arbeiten bauen aufeinander auf und runden das Werk uber die zentralen und sudlichen Anden als typisches Beispiel fur ein Orogengebiet mit aktiver Subduktionszone ab. Das Buch ! gehort ! zweifellos in jede geowissenschaftliche Bibliothek und Universitatsbibliothek sowie in die Hande jedes Vulkanologen, Geologen, Geochemikers und Geophysikers." (C. Schmitt-Riegraf, in: Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie Teil II, 2007, Issue 5-6, S. 743 ff.)
