... geologic setting ( Harper 1984 ). The crustal shortening between the back-arc spreading axis and the outer arc was accommodated through a few thrust imbrications in the forearc region. As the leading edge of the overriding plate approached the Indo-Burma-Andaman (IBA) microcontinent, which is thought...
