Short summary
Traditional models of thrust front deformation in the southern Central Andes propose the tectonic inversion of the Triassic Cuyo Basin. Here we analyze the amount and structural style of this inversion and provide a three-dimensional insight into the relationship between inversion of rift-related structures and spatial variations in late Cenozoic stress fields.
