Almost all of the world's great mountain chains exhibit some degree of curvature when viewed on geologic and topographic maps. The processes driving the development of curvature in mountain belts have been of interest to geologists for nearly a century, beginning with the work of W.H. Hobbs in 1914. However, our understanding of curvature has been strongly influenced by studies in ancient mountain belts, where the te
