Thrust tectonics - Wikipedia

Thrust tectonics or contractional tectonics is concerned with the structures formed by, and the tectonic processes associated with, the shortening and thickening of the crust or lithosphere. It is one of the three main types of tectonic regime, the others being extensional tectonics and strike-slip tectonics. These match the three types of plate boundary, convergent, divergent and transform. There are two main types of thrust

Crustal Thinning - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

During the rift phase, the upper crust was subjected to brittle extension and the lower crust was subjected to ductile stretching that is only rarely observed in the field (Fig. 10.3). Crustal thinning was achieved by a network of normal and strike-slip faults defining a system of tilted blocks (Chapter 6). At the start of the orogeny, the lower crust was shortened again in a ductile manner. Thus, while deep

Contrasting crustal deformation mechanisms in the ...

01/06/2019  For mechanisms of the topographic uplifting and crustal thickening in NE Tibet, two popular end-member models were proposed. In the first one, the rigid plate model, the growth of the plateau is by oblique thrusting and folding between coherent lithospheric blocks along major strike-slip faults ( Tapponnier et al., 2001 ).

steady crustal thickness is achieved that results in a more stationary arc front with long-lived mantle melt-ing. This appears to be the case for some island arcs. Thus, in combination with tectonic modulation of crustal thickness, magmatic thickening provides a self consistent model for volcanic arc front migration and the composition of arc magmas. 1.

Tectonic uplift - Wikipedia

Crustal thickening. Crustal thickening has an upward component of motion and often occurs when continental crust is thrust onto continental crust. Basically nappes (thrust sheets) from each plate collide and begin to stack one on top of the other; evidence of this process can be seen in preserved ophiolitic nappes (preserved in the Himalaya), and in rocks with an inverted metamorphic gradient.

Crustal eclogitization

In the model in Figure 1, the lower crustal density is increased to 130 kg/m 3 greater than mantle, corresponding to ~90% eclogitization of mafic crust. The negative buoyancy of eclogitized crust results in localized shortening at the orogen edges, with stronger localization on the right due to the incoming strong block. This produces crustal thickening and surface uplift above the eclogite ...

Tectonic subsidence is the sinking of the Earth's crust on a large scale, relative to crustal-scale features or the geoid. The movement of crustal plates and accommodation spaces created by faulting create subsidence on a large scale in a variety of environments, including passive margins, aulacogens, fore-arc basins, foreland basins, intercontinental basins and pull-apart basins.
