ern Qaidam basin explains a long puzzling observation that Cenozoic depocenters have been located consistently along the central axis of the basin. This basin confi guration is opposite to the prediction of classic foreland-basin models that require the thickest part of foreland sediments deposited along basin edges against basin-bounding thrusts. The four-part districting scheme (wedge-top, foredeep, forebulge, and backbulge depozones) applies to many foreland basin systems worldwide, but significant variations occur in the stratigraphic record. These variations depend on tectonic setting and the nature of the associated fold-thrust belt.

Cenozoic exhumation patterns in the internal and external Zagros reveal a long‐term deformation record associated with geodynamic restructuring of Arabia‐Eurasia collisional zone from continental subduction to plate suturing, which can be evaluated from thermochronometric, provenance, and Cited by: The outcome of a symposium held in Fribourg, Switzerland, this book fulfils two aims.

Firstly, it represents a collection of case-studies covering a wide range of basin types and tectonic and stratigraphic settings.

On the proside (western‐northern) of the belt, starting at ~35 Ma, the Swiss Molasse basin migrated forelandward (northward) [Allen et al., ; Burkhard and Sommaruga, ; Ford and Lickorish, ] in response to hinterland deformation and exhumation, which incorporated parts of the proximal foreland basin into the orogenic wedge.

It is. Foreland Basins in the Geological Record. Most foreland basins occur in the immediate vicinity of continental collision zones. For example, the Alpine foreland basins of southern Europe, which were generated as a result of the collision of the European and African contrast, other foreland basins occur within regions of compressional tectonics that are located relatively large.

[1] Cenozoic strata in the central Andes of northwestern Argentina record the development and migration of a regional foreland basin system analogous to the modern Chaco‐Paraná alluvial plain. Paleocene‐lower Eocene fluvial and lacustrine deposits are overlain by middle‐upper Eocene hypermature paleosols or an erosional disconformity representing 10–15 Myr.

Retroarc foreland basins form behind continental margin arc systems (Figure a), and they are filled largely with clastic terrigenous sediments derived from a fold-thrust belt behind the arc.A key element in foreland basin development is the syntectonic character of the sediments (Graham et al., ).The greatest thickness of foreland basin sediments borders the fold-thrust belt reflecting.

A foreland basin is a structural basin that develops adjacent and parallel to a mountain nd basins form because the immense mass created by crustal thickening associated with the evolution of a mountain belt causes the lithosphere to bend, by a process known as lithospheric width and depth of the foreland basin is determined by the flexural rigidity of the underlying.

Two stratigraphic intervals, informally named the Gand Ab and Narijan units, represent a former basin system that existed in the Alborz. The Gand Ab unit is composed of marine lagoonal mudstones, fluvial and.

A foreland basin system is defined as: (a) an elongate region of potential sediment accommodation that forms on continental crust between a contractional orogenic belt and the adjacent craton, mainly in response to geodynamic processes related to subduction and the resulting peripheral or retroarc fold‐thrust belt; (b) it consists of four discrete depozones, referred to as the wedge‐top.

Sedimentary basins have been generated in hinterland regions of the Andean and Himalayan‐Tibetan orogens during Cenozoic plate convergence. These hinterland basins record nonmarine sediment accumulation (commonly in high‐elevation, lowrelief, internally drained, arid/semiarid settings) during protracted deformation and surface uplift of continental crust.

Research Highlights In this study we analyze the Cenozoic tectonic evolution of more than 64 Iberian foreland basins. Most of the contacts between topographic highs and basins are thrust or strike-slip faults.

All these basins seem to have undergone a common sedimentary evolution, comprising four stages: initiation of sedimentation, intense syn-tectonic infilling, change from.

The proposed model is tested by comparison with the structure of sections across the Alberta Foreland Basin of Western Canada. It is shown that a model in which mass loads continuously advance on to the craton in a series of pulses between the Upper Jurassic and the Eocene is consistent with observations.

Flanking the Taiwan orogenic belt, the Western Taiwan Foreland Basin was formed by flexural bending of the Eurasian plate in response to load of late Cenozoic Taiwan orogenic belt caused by collision between Luzon arc - Chinese continental margin (Covey,Lin and Watts,Teng,Yu and Chou, ; Fig.

Foreland basins usually exist as subsurface features that have been filled with debris eroded from the advancing overthrust slice of crust. Miocene‐Quaternary history of basin evolution in north-western Argentina is also a subject of debate, with some authors arguing for continued eastward propagation of deformation and migration of the foreland basin [Carrapa et al., a, b] while others advocate a change to localized basins associated with thick‐skinned deformation.

Development of Mesozoic and Cenozoic sedimentary basins in western North America was linked to the overall geodynamics of an active continental margin. The Cordilleran margin, now largely of Californian-type with a bounding transform, was Atlantic-type from late Precambrian to early Paleozoic, Japanese-type from late Paleozoic to early Mesozoic.

foreland basins (Beaumont, ; Jordan, ). The newly created depozones are referred to as proarc (or simply pro-) foreland basins, where placed in front of the orogenic belt––on the descending (pro-lithosphere) plate, or as retroarc (retro-) foreland basins, where placed behind the orogenic belt––on the overriding.

In the most proximal part of the foreland basin system, the eastern Subandean zone and westernmost Chaco Plain, 1–3 km of Cenozoic deposits overlies active folds.A foreland basin is a structural basin that develops adjacent and parallel to a mountain belt.

Foreland basins form because the immense mass created by crustal thickening associated with the evolution of a mountain belt causes the lithosphere to bend, by a process known as lithospheric flexure.

The width and depth of the foreland basin is determined by the flexural rigidity of the underlying.
