In the Peruvian sub-Andean foreland basin system, the construction of serial balanced cross-sections from a good set of structural data and an extensive knowledge of the stratigraphy and geodynamic evolution allow a more refined definition of the unexplored plays, as subthrusts, duplexes, or pre-Andean structures. Sequential restorations are proposed by coupling thermochronologic analyses with growth strata studies. The results show significant north–south variations in geometry, timing and rates of deformation, and foreland sedimentation. These latitudinal variations are not only related to the pre-Andean basins’ inheritance but also to the interactions between thrusts propagation, erosion, and sedimentation. Thermochronologic ages correspond...
