  • The fold-and-thrust belts and submarine accretionary wedges that lie along compressive plate boundaries are one of the best understood deformational features of the Earth's upper crust. Although there is considerable natural variation among the many fold-and-thrust belts and accretionary wedges that have been recognized and explored, several features appear to be universal . In cross section, fold-and-thrust belts and accretionary wedges occupy a wedge-shaped deformed region overlying a basal… CONTINUE READING
