7 We use two-dimensional mechanical models to investigate the effects of 8 syntectonic sedimentation on fold-and-thrust belt development, testing variable 9 syntectonic (wedge-top and foredeep) sediment thicknesses and flexural rigidities. Model 10 results indicate a first-order control of syntectonic sedimentation on thrust-sheet length 11 and thrust spacing. Thrust sheets are longer when syntectonic sediment thickness and/or 12 flexural rigidity increase. Comparison with observations from… CONTINUE READING
