Part 1 Purpose and scope-rationale: historical review; our approach; thrust belts and foreland basins. Part 2 The big picture: large-scale geometry of thrust belts and foreland basins; plate-tectonics settings, modern and ancient examples; subsidence of foreland basins; wedge theory. Part 3 Geometry and mechanics of thrust faults: thrust faults; thrust-related folds; deformation mechanisms; strain in thrust sheets; balanced cross sections. Part 4 Geomorphology and denudation of thrust belts: topography; drainage patterns and evolution; erosion of thrust belts. Part 5 Synorogenic sediments: depositional systems and geomorphology of foreland basins: stratigraphic architecture of foreland basins: composition of synorogenic sediments; strain in synorogenic sediments; strain unroofing histories. Part 6 Integrating structure and sedimentology in thrust belts and foreland basins: incorporating strain and provenance information into retro-deformation of cross sections; analysis of wedge behaviour and controls on the wedge.
