Tectonics and uplift in Central Andes (Peru, Bolivia and Northern Chile) from Eocene to present

  author={Michel S{\'e}brier and Alain Lavenu and Michel Fornari and Jean Pierre Soulas},
The analysis of sedimenta y and volcank records, exposed in southern Peru, Bolivia, and norfhem Chile, allow us to establish the chronological evolution of Central Andes from Upper Eocene to Present. This analysis is based on fieid observations and a re-evaluation of the available geological data. It gives evidence for six discrete compressionai tectonic puises that are dated : Upper Eocene (ca 42 Ma), Upper Oligocene (ca 26-28 Ma). lower Miocene (ca 1517 Ma). middle Miocene (ca 10 Ma). Upper… 

Provenance model of the Cenozoic siliciclastic sediments from the western Central Andes (16-21°S): implications for Eocene to Miocene evolution of the Andes

The tectonic evolution of the South American continent western margin is controlled by the continuous subduction of the Nazca plate. The Central Andes, which reach altitudes of 6500 m, are

Punctuated shortening and subsidence in the Altiplano Plateau of southern Peru: Implications for early Andean mountain building

Sedimentologic, provenance, geochronologic, and magnetostratigraphic results from clastic nonmarine deposits in the northern Altiplano Plateau of southern Peru (14–15°S) demonstrate late

Neotectonic activity in Ecuador and Peru, from geomorphic to geodetic data, focus around Andean megacities

The Andean range stretches for thousands of kilometers from Patagonia to Venezuela and its recent tectonic evolution results from the ongoing subduction of the Nazca plate. Less studied than the

Relation of magmatic activity to plate dynamics in central Peru from Late Cretaceous to present

A detailed synthesis of the chronology and spatial distribution of magmatic activity along a transect of the Andes of central Peru (around 11’s latitude) and some new K-Ar radiochronological data are

An Integrated Tectono-Magmatic Model for the Evolution of the Southern Peruvian Andes (13-20°S) since 55 Ma

The definition and characterization of the Oligocene-Miocene Crucero Supergroup of the southern Peru Inner Arc domain provide a previously unavailable lithostratigraphic framework for the
