ndean orocline and implications for grain-scale shortening in orogens
N. Eichelberger, Dept. of Geosciences, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA; and N. McQuarrie, Dept. of Geology and Planetary Science, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15260, USA. Published online on 30 July 2014; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/B30968.1.

The magnitude of contraction, or shortening, accommodated in active mountain ranges is a critical observation for understanding how mountain belts evolve over geologic time. Shortening is often estimated from cross-section models that are constrained by geologic map patterns and fault geometries at scales of kilometers or greater. In addition, micro-scale strain data from several ranges show that regionally significant amounts of shortening can also occur at the grain-scale (millimeters or less). Here, Nathan Eichelberger and Nadine McQuarrie present new micro-scale strain data from the Bolivian Andes that indicates that micro-scale shortening was a negligible part of the deformation budget. By comparing variables such as deformation temperature and rock strength between mountain ranges, Eichelberger and McQuarrie explore what factors may have limited grain-scale shortening in the Bolivian Andes. It appears that low deformation temperatures and abundant-but-weak shale favored the development of faults rather than grain-scale shortening. Globally, this implies that pre-deformation basin sedimentology of may later influence mountain belt evolution.
