Names are followed by 3-letter abbreviations for sample locality: GOC, Gulf of Cadiz; WAF, West Africa margin; BAP, Barbados Accretionary
Prism; GOM, Gulf of Mexico; SAG, Sagami Bay; KER, Kermadec Arc.
In the down-drift end of the installation sites both accretionary
fillets and erosional fillets (Figure 12) are observed.
2006, Lower to Middle Ordovician evolution of periLaurentian arc and back-arc complexes in the Iapetus: Constraints from the Annieopsquotch accretionary
tract, central Newfoundland: Geological Society of America Bulletin, v.
The final consequence of this convergence is the accretion and collision in the Late Neogene of Costa Rica--Panama--Choco Block (CRPCB) in Colombia northwestern corner, together with accretion of Sinu accretionary
wedge in Colombian Caribbean platform (Chicangana and Vargas, 2003; Chicangana et al.
Oxidising plasmas react only with organic carbon in the samples, leaving substrate rock and accretionary
carbonates and oxalates intact (Russ et al.
Fluid pressures generated in subduction-zone accretionary
prisms modify the mechanical behavior of the deforming sediment section, and the resultant fluid flow is believed to be responsible for hydrocarbon migration, the formation of methane hydrates, and major diagenetic changes in the sediments.

the porosity of the originally water-rich sediments of accretionary
complexes is rapidly reduced by tectonic forces,
The Barga Terrane is interpreted as having formed in ocean-margin environment with active island-and-Andean type magnetic arcs, rifted basis, accretionary
wedges and continental margins.
The complex geology of accretionary
margins results in variable scenarios for landslide generation, and also makes identification of landslides difficult.
Stratigraphy, geochronology, and accretionary
terrane settings of two Bronson Hill arc seuences, northern New England.
Topics discussed include unique features of the Cenozoic igneous rocks of Greece, paleomagnetic analysis of neotectonic deformation in the Anatolian accretionary
collage, slab break-off and syncollisional origin of the Late Cretaceous magmatism in the Central Anatolian crystalline complex, and tectonic control on mud volcanoes and fluid seeps in the Anaximander Mountains.
