[1] Analogue experiments with variable along-strike shortening were performed by pushing a rotating rigid backstop against constant thickness one-layer (sand) and two-layer (sand-silicone) cakes. Along-strike shortening differences were introduced by the vertical axis rotation of the backstop and caused lateral variations in the deformational style of the accretionary wedge. Deformational fronts were diachronous and oblique with respect to the backstop direction. Numerous oblique ramps… CONTINUE READING
