Abstract

Among convergent margins, Mexico is an excellent site for studying along-strike variation in plate tectonics at the trench and its effect on the accompanying volcanism and tectonics in the overriding plate. The progressive fragmentation and consumption of the Farallon plate and the interaction between the Pacific and North America plates during the Cenozoic produced some unique geologic features. These include the Sierra Madre Occidental, one of the largest silicic igneous provinces on Earth, and the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, a complex continental volcanic arc underlain by two of the youngest slabs in the world. In addition, extension occurred concurrently in much of the region affected by volcanism, producing a significant part of the southern Basin and Range province, and the reactivation of older basement structures which controlled the emplacement of volcanism.
