Subduction Duration and Slab Dip

The dip angles of slabs are among the clearest characteristics of subduction zones, but the factors that control them remain obscure. Here, slab dip angles and subduction parameters, including

Late Triassic to Early Jurassic Plutonism in south Chile (34°-37°S): Its significance for the geodynamic evolution in the transition from Gondwana to Andean orogeny

Abstract The South American margin is a long-lived active margin since the Late Carboniferous (>300 Ma). Two tectonomagmatic stages have been documented for this time at the margin: The Late

Neogene seismotectonics of the south-central Chile margin

(TYPE=abstract)The Andean orogen is the most outstanding example of mountain building caused by the subduction of oceanic below continental lithosphere. The Andes formed by the subduction of the

Igneous Rock Associations 25. Pre-Pliocene Andean Magmatism in Chile

Andean-type magmatism and the term ‘andesite’ are often used as the norm for the results of subduction of oceanic lithosphere under a continent, and the typical rock formed. Although the Andes chain

Cenozoic Orogenic Evolution of the Southern Central Andes (32–36°S)

This review explores the complex interactions of endogenic and exogenic processes in the segment of the Andes that straddle a transition from the Pampean flat slab to a normal subduction segment

Late Oligocene–early Miocene submarine volcanism and deep-marine sedimentation in an extensional basin of southern Chile: Implications for the tectonic development of the North Patagonian Andes

The Chilean margin has been used as the model of an ocean-continent convergent system dominated by compression and active mountain building as a consequence of the strong mechanical coupling between

Geology, geochemistry and geometallurgy of the Productora Cu-Au-Mo deposit, Chile

The Productora Cu-Au-Mo deposit is hosted by a hydrothermal breccia complex in the Coastal Cordillara of Region III, northern Chile. Mineralisation at Productora extends discontinuously over 8 km in
