The relative importance of crustal thickening, lithospheric delamination, and climate change in driving surface uplift and the associated changes in accommodation space and depositional facies in the adjacent foreland basin in the central Andes has been a topic of vigorous debate over the past decade. Interpretation of structural, geochemical, geomorphic, and geobiologic field data has led to two proposed end-member Tertiary surface uplift scenarios for the Eastern Cordillera and Subandes in the vicinity of the Bolivian orocline. A “gradual uplift” model proposes that the rate of surface uplift has been relatively steady since deformation propagated into the Eastern Cordillera during...
