Abstract

The Western Mediterranean tectonic setting and history is studied by means of threedimensional numerical models. Goals are to understand its dynamics and to test the feasibility of a double-polarity subduction process that could have a key importance in the complex setup of this area. The physical model, the numerical techniques used to solve it are presented in this work together with some preliminary 2D and 3D results.
