The eighth foreign convention on Basement Tectonics was once held in Butte, Montana, August 8-12,1988. traditionally, basement tectonics meetings have considering such subject matters as reactivation of faults, the effect of basement faults on metallogeny and hyrocarbon accumulation, and using geophysical and distant sensing thoughts to interpret subsurface and floor geology. The eighth convention diverged from prior meetings in unifying topic used to be chosen. simply because historic significant terrane or cratonic obstacles are frequently postulated to be fault zones that are consequently reactivated, the convention used to be prepared to envision all elements of historic continental margins and terrane obstacles and to check more youthful (Mesozoic) ones, approximately which extra is understood, with older (Paleozoic and Precambrian) ones. additionally, as the eighth convention was once held within the northwestern usa, a better emphasis was once put on the Mesozoic margin of western North the USA and the North American defend. The seven oral periods and 4 poster periods all handled points of the convention subject: characterization and comparability of old continental margins. The organizers expand their due to these people who graciously consented to function moderators for the oral periods: John M. Bartley, Mark S. Gettings, M. Charles Gilbert, John M. Guilbert, Donald W. Hyndman, William P. Leeman, Robert Mason, and A. Krishna Sinha. this system with abstracts quantity used to be ready through S. E. Lewis and M. J. Bartholomew.

Kearey's model of the geometry of the mass of mafic igneous rocks interpreted from an observed gravity profile (Profile 3) is shown for comparison. Density contrasts for arenites and mafic igneous rocks relative to the background density of Superior and Churchill gneisses are given in units of g/cm 3 . Argillitic rocks are similar in density to the gneisses thus precluding modelling of these rocks. a (Figure 10). Andean evolution has been strongly influenced by block-faulting that may be related to intense coupling between the Nazca and South American plates.
