[1] Understanding Neogene arc crustal thickening in the central Andes requires (1) some estimate of initial preNeogene (prior to 26 Ma) crustal thicknesses and (2) mechanisms that account for the remaining deficit in crustal thickening (1030%). MidMiocene horizontal crustal shortening can explain most but not all crustal thickening in the modern central Andean arc.

Crustal Shortening and Crustal Volume. To estimate the role of crustal shortening we consider a 35 km thick initial crust, similar to the present craton, 0.3 km above present sea level. Digital topographic data (NGDC Globe 1.0) yields the volume of the Andes above 0.3 km to be ~4.1x106 km3 (Fig. 1).

Mountain Major mountain belts of the world Most mountains and mountain ranges are parts of mountain belts that have formed where two lithospheric plates have converged and where, in most cases, they continue to converge. In effect, many mountain belts mark the boundaries of lithospheric plates, and these boundaries in turn intersect other such boundaries.

Crustal thickening and thinning, via tectonics, modify the geotherm in two different ways. First, during deformation, heat is advected mainly upward (in the case of thinning) and mainly downward (in the case of thickening) as rocks carry their temperature with them during fast thinning or fast thickening.

A passive margin is the transition between oceanic and continental lithosphere that is not an active plate margin.A passive margin forms by sedimentation above an ancient rift, now marked by transitional lithosphere.Continental rifting creates new ocean basins. Eventually the continental rift forms a mid ocean ridge and the locus of extension moves away from the continent ocean boundary.
