<p>The average depth and heat flow of oceanic lithosphere as functions of age are well described by cooling plate models in which old lithosphere approaches an asymptotic thermal structure, causing average depth and heat flow to flatten. However, some areas ...
BLOCK KINEMATICS OF THE PACIFIC - NORTH AMERICA PLATE BOUNDARY IN THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES FROM INVERSION OF GPS, SEISMOLOGICAL AND GEOLOGIC DATA (2005)
<p>The active deformation of the southwestern United States (30 - 41 N) is represented by a finite number of rotating, elastic-plastic spherical caps.</p>
GRAVITATIONAL AND TECTONIC FORCES CONTROLLING POSTCOLLISIONAL DEFORMATION AND THE PRESENT-DAY STRESS FIELD OF THE ALPS: CONSTRAINTS FROM NUMERICAL MODELING (2005)
The aim of this work is to find a simple model that can explain the large-scale features of the postcollisional (last 35 Myr) evolution of the Alps, including their planform shape, topography, lithospheric structure, and pattern of erosion/sedimentation, providing ...
A two-layer (crust and upper mantle), finite difference steady-state thermomechanical model of a long-lived (several million years) lithospheric strike-slip fault is presented, and its predictions compared with field observations from various major fault zones ...
