      In this work we study the dynamics of double subduction systems with opposite polarity in adjacent segments. A combined approach of numerical and analog experiments allows us to compare results and exploit the strengths ...
    • Numerical modelling of opposing subduction in the Western Mediterranean 

      Peral Millán, Mireia; Fernandez Ortiga, Manel; Vergés Masip, Jaume; Zlotnik, Sergio; Jimenez Munt, Ivone (2022-05-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      The geodynamic evolution of the Western Mediterranean related to the closure of the Ligurian-Tethys ocean is not yet fully resolved. We present a new 3D numerical model of double subduction with opposite polarities fostered ...
    • Opposite subduction polarity in adjacent plate segments 

      Peral, Mireia; Kiraly, Agnes; Zlotnik, Sergio; Funiciello, Francesca; Fernandez Ortiga, Manel; Faccenna, Claudio; Vergés, Jaume (2018-09)
