Using 3D geodynamic slab models in tectonic reconstruction

Creighton, Reuben


In this thesis, two regions of convergent Cenozoic tectonics are investigated, and recent subduction is reconstructed using 3D models that map the surface of subducted slabs in the mantle. In Iran, the subduction of the Neotethys ocean prior to the collision of the Arabian continent with Eurasia is reconstructed, and the debates regarding the age of continental collision, slab tearing, and the generation of adakitic magmatism are examined. From the magnitude of reconstructed subducted...[Show more]
