Geochemistry of heavy minerals and U-Pb detrital zircon geochronology in the manantiales basin: implications for Frontal Cordillera uplift and foreland basin connectivity in the Andes of central Argentina
The Manantiales Foreland Basin, located at similar to 32 degrees 15'S in the Frontal Cordillera, Argentina, contains the sedimentary record of erosion of igneous basement and Miocene volcanic rocks exhumed during the Andean ...
Revisiting the crustal structure and kinematics of the central Andes at 33.5 degrees S: implications for the mechanics of andean mountain building
(American Geophysical Union, 2018-05)
The Andean belt is the only present-day active case example of a subduction-type orogeny. However, an existing controversy opposes classical views of Andean growth as an east verging retro wedge, against a recently proposed ...
