Contribution of the West Andean flank in Northern Chile to early stages of the Andean orogeny: insights from structural geology, thermochronology and analog modeling
Using a variety of approaches (structural geology, thermochronology, analog modeling), this PhD project aimed at providing answers to the following questions: what are the conditions that promoted Andean mountain-building? Where and when did mountain-building initiate in Northern Chili? How much deformation, in particular at the earliest stages of orogeny?
