    The kinematic evolution of the Patagonian fold-and-thrust belt and cogenetic Magallanes retroarc foreland basin is reconstructed using new geologic mapping, twodimensional (2-D) seismic-reflection data, and zircon U/Pb geochronology. Results span an ~160-km-wide transect of the thrust belt and...
