Geologists have long recognized the importance and sought the meaning of curved orogenic belts. Over the last few decades, several classification schemes have been proposed for curved orogens that have been largely based on the relationship between, and geometry of, displacement and strain trajectories. However, determination of strain trajectory paths and the complete displacement field of an arcuate orogen is difficult at best. It is often possible to measure only one component of the total strain field, but virtually impossible to measure the complete displacement field. In addition, many of these classification schemes have changed or modified original definitions for...
