About this book

This book describes the Mesozoic to Cenozoic evolution of the Chilean and Argentinean Andes. The book is structured from a historical perspective concentrating on specific processes explained in each chapter. The chapters cover dynamic subsidence; neotectonics; magmatism; long and short term deformation; spatial development of ancient orogenic processes that control Andean reactivations; relation between ocean bathymetry and deformation. Sources of detritus through Andean construction are discussed by specialists from both sides of the Southern Andes. This book provides up-to-date reviews, maps, evolutionary schemes and extensive reference lists useful for geoscientists and students in Earth Science fields.

About the authors

Professor Andreas Folguera is an independent researcher at the Universidad de Buenos Aires and a Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences. His research has revolved around the mechanisms and causes of the Andean orogenesis. He is the author of numerous books and articles in this field.
