This book provides the first comprehensive overview of a complete subduction orogen, the Andes, considered to represent the 'type' subduction belt on Earth. Integrating the results from a wide variety of methods it provides the most compact and highly resolved geophysical image of an active subduction orogen complimented by detailed geodetic data and a range of geological observations. This allows the derivation of a sophisticated process-oriented understanding of the mechanisms driving subduction orogeny's in their various manifestations.
