Deformation in accretionary orogens, such as the eastern Australian Tasmanides, is clearly partitioned either as thin-skinned thrusting or thick-skinned faulting, with structural style dependent on the nature and stratal thicknesses of the sequences involved. The thin-skinned thrust systems consist of either detachment-related folds and thrust sheets within attenuated passive margin sequences or thrust sheets of chevron-folded turbidites with leading imbricate-fan geometry that are developed within former submarine fans overlying back-arc basin oceanic lithosphere. Thick-skinned belts consist of major thrust faults that root into the seismic reflection Moho with no apparent common décollement and cause crustal-scale imbrication of former arc, forearc,...
