<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 ...

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 ...
