Title: An Orogenic Model Consistent with Earth Expansion
Issue Date: 1994
Keywords: Orogeny, tectonic transport, strike slip, megashears, equatorial orogen, circum-pacific orogen
Abstract: The paper presents the author's view on orogeny, as opposed to the crustal shortening assumption of plate tectonics. It is shown that first order tectonic transport takes place not across but along the strike of orogens. Accordingly orogens are considered to be megashears of the crust. They are of two types, due to their location and specific tectonic environment: equatorial and circum-pacific orogens. As none of them implies subduction, they are consistent with the assumption of an expanding Earth.
