Here are the results of a six-year multidisciplinary study of the central part of the Andean orogenic belt and its eastward adjacent foreland basin system, in northern Argentina and Chile. The study was designed to test the idea that diverse processes operating in cordilleran-style orogenic belts may be linked in feedback and feed-forward relationships. The studies provide new data from the upper mantle to the surface, from the forearc to the active foreland basin, and employ a wide array of techniques and methods in geophysics, petrology, geochronology and thermochronology, sedimentology, structural geology, geomorphology, paleoaltimetry, and geodynamic modeling.
