Lithospheric Dynamics in the Southernmost Andean Plateau (PUDEL)

Benjamin Heit, Xiaohui Yuan, Rainer Kind & Günter Asch
The seismic array is part of a collaborative international passive-source seismic experiment in the southern Puna (25°S to 28°S) that aims to address fundamental questions on the processes that form, modify and destroy continental lithosphere and control lithospheric dynamics along Andean-type continental margins. The southern Puna is anomalous with respect to the rest of the Andean plateau in having a distinct magmatic and structural history, a large deficit in crustal shortening compared to its elevation...
