The Franciscan Subduction Complex

Full Title: Deformation and Exhumation at Convergent Margins: The Franciscan Subduction Complex
Author: Uwe Ring
Description:
The Franciscan subduction complex formed a long-lived accretionary wedge of Late Jurassic through Oligocene age that fringed the western edge of the North American Cordillera. This volume summarizes absolute finite-strain data from the Franciscan subduction complex and brittle strain data from important faults in and above this complex. Because the Franciscan is generally considered a prototypical sediment-rich subduction complex, its tectonic evolution is important for understanding convergent plate margins, and the results outlined in this volume may have broad implications for other subduction-zone settings.
