After Doglioni et al. (1999a). ” The Alpine orogen was stretched and scattered in the Apennines backarc basin. The backarc extension is internally punctuated by necks (subbasins) and boudins, horsts of continental lithosphere. The asymmetric extension in the backarc basin appears controlled by differential drag between the eastward mantle flow and the overlying, passively transported, crustal remnants. Compression in the accretionary prism may be interpreted as the superficial expression of the shear occurring between the downgoing lithosphere and the horizontally moving mantle which compensates the slab rollback (see Chapter 5).

The subduction rate S is given by VS ¼ VHÀVL. Numerical values are given only as an example. S increases when H diverges relative to the upper plate (a), whereas S decreases if H converges (b). The movements diverging from the upper plate are positive, whereas they are negative when converging. The case (a) is accompanied by backarc spreading, a low prism, and it is typical of W-directed subduction zones. In case (b) that is more frequent along E-to NNE-directed subduction zones, double verging and elevated orogens form.

8 Mostly double verging Largely basement, sedimentary cover and volcanics >30 km; oceanic subduction, affecting mostly the whole section of the upper plate; continental subduction affecting also the lower plate Mainly high Deep (>40 km) doubled old Mohos due to lithospheric doubling Deep (>70e100 km) beneath the arc 0e250 km And scattered 630e670 km; intraslab mostly down-dip extension 15 e50 , steeper up to 70 along oblique subductions and thicker upper plate Mainly converging E-ward or NE-ward Carlo Doglioni and Giuliano Panza Elevation average Foreland monocline average dip Trench or foredeep subsidence rate Prism envelope average dip Orogen-prism vergence Type of prism rocks 50 Table 2 Few main geometric, kinematic, and dynamic differences between orogens and subduction zones following or opposing the tectonic mainstream.
