Convergent plate margin dynamics: New perspectives from structural geology, geophysics and geodynamic modelling

Schellart, W P; Rawlinson, Nicholas

Description

Convergent plate margins occur when two adjoining tectonic plates come together to form either a subduction zone, where at least one of the converging plates is oceanic and plunges beneath the other into the mantle, or a collision zone, where two continents or a continent and a magmatic arc collide. Convergent plate margins are arguably the most complicated and dynamic plate boundaries on Earth and have been the subject of many investigations and discussions since the advent of plate tectonic...[Show more]
