Version of Record online: 5 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GC004011

Key Points

  • New model treating coupling and interactions of wedge, lithosphere, and mantle
  • First clear confirmation of Platt's (1987) model for syn-convergent exhumation
  • Basal friction is key subduction erosion, some inter-plate friction is required
