SIMULATION OF FORELAND BASIN STRATIGRAPHY USING A DIFFUSION-MODEL OF MOUNTAIN BELT UPLIFT AND EROSION - AN EXAMPLE FROM THE CENTRAL ALPS, SWITZERLAND

Abstract:

Foreland basin stratigraphy can be considered as the result of three interacting processes: thrust deformation, which builds the tectonic load, sedimentary and erosional processes which redistribute that load, and the flexural response of the lithosphere. The resultant stratigraphy of foreland basins is commonly composed of a small number of shallowing and coarsening upward cycles bounded by regional unconformities. To understand the development of these unconformities, we present a simple mo...
