Summary:This volume is derived from 'Orogenesis in the Outback', a conference held in Alice Springs in 1999 and contains 19 papers. As a result of buoyancy, continental crust is rarely subducted, resulting in successive generations of continental deformation with a complex geological character unlike that in younger oceanic lithosphere.[1]Continental reactivation and reworking: an introduction.
