Introduction. The Cenozoic evolution of the northern Andes can provide important insights to answer questions about Andean margin processes, such as how slip is partitioned at complex obliquely convergent plate boundaries, how mountain building rates and styles can be correlated with convergent boundary processes, and what are the kinematics of an active arc-continent collision and : James N.
