      Accepted manuscript online: 9 DEC 2014 08:06AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003640

      Key Points

      • To describe the main features of Jurassic strata in the Junggar Basin.
      • To analyze the Jurassic evolution of the Junggar Basin and neighboring areas.
      • To discuss the mechanisms of Jurassic intraplate deformation in Central Asia.
    3. Evidence for a far traveled thrust sheet in the Greater Himalayan thrust system, and an alternative model to building the Himalaya

      S. Khanal, D. M. Robinson, M. J. Kohn and S. Mandal

      Accepted manuscript online: 5 DEC 2014 08:50PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003616

      Key Points

      • The Galchhi shear zone predates the Main Central thrust
      • Similar timing, age, and metamorphism to the intra-Greater Himalayan thrusts
      • Kathmandu klippe is the leading edge of an intra- Greater Himalayan thrust
    4. Geometry, amount and sequence of thrusting in the Subalpine Molasse of Western Austria and Southern Germany, European Alps

      Hugo Ortner, Silvia Aichholzer, Michael Zerlauth, Roland Pilser and Bernhard Fügenschuh

      Accepted manuscript online: 5 DEC 2014 01:36AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003550

      Key Points

      • Break-back sequence of thrusting due to interaction with escape tectonics
      • Differential Miocene shortening causes clockwise vertical axis rotation
      • Foreland-propagation of thrusting ends with onset of escape tectonics
    5. Tectonic magnetic lineation and oroclinal bending of the Alborz Range: implications on the Iran-Southern Caspian geodynamics

      Francesca Cifelli, Paolo Ballato, Habib Alimohammadian, Jafar Sabouri and Massimo Mattei

      Accepted manuscript online: 2 DEC 2014 04:48PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003626

      Key Points

      • Evaluation of oroclinal bending of Alborz within Arabia-Eurasia collision zone
      • Orogenic curvature of Alborz acquired not earlier than ca. 7.6 Ma
      • Migration of the South Caspian Basin postdated oroclinal bending of Alborz
    6. Influence of attenuated lithosphere and sediment loading on flexure of the deep-water Magallanes retroarc foreland basin, Southern Andes

      Julie C. Fosdick, Stephan A. Graham and George E. Hilley

      Accepted manuscript online: 27 NOV 2014 01:56PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003684

      Key Points

      • Subsidence patterns are evaluated with numerical models of basin deflection
      • Lateral changes in rigidity promote deep and long-wavelength subsidence
      • Sediment loading promotes broad subsidence and reduced forebulge uplift
    7. The curved Magallanes fold and thrust belt: Tectonic insights from a paleomagnetic and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility study

      F. Poblete, P. Roperch, F. Hervé, M. Diraison, M. Espinoza and C. Arriagada

      Accepted manuscript online: 27 NOV 2014 05:35AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003555

      Key Points

      • Sediments from the Magallanes fold and thrust belt have low magnetite content
      • CCW rotations of about 20{degree sign} are recorded near the hinge of the belt
      • The curved Magallanes fold and thrust belt is mainly a primary arc
