Tectonomorphic scenarios in the Southern Alps of New Zealand

Herman, Frederic; Braun, Jean; Dunlap, William James

Description

Temperature-time histories of rocks are often used to constrain the kinematics of tectonic events, the evolution of landforms, erosion rates, and/or amount of faulting in tectonically active areas. However, interpretations based on thermal histories are not always straightforward as they rely on several interdependent mechanisms such as heat conduction, heat advection, or the presence of transient topography that must be taken into account. Using a three-dimensional finite element code recently...[Show more]
