1986; Waschbusch and Beaumont, 1996). Subduction zone kinematics predicts that, assuming a fixed lower plate, the velocity of the subduction (VS) equals the velocity of the subduction hinge (VS ¼ ÀVH). In all subduction zones the subduction hinge migrates toward the lower plate. However, if we rather refer to a fixed upper plate, the subduction hinge can instead either converge or diverge (Figure 21). , 2006a; 2007). The velocity of subduction (VS) is given by the rate of slab hinge (VH) minus the convergence rate of the lower plate relative to the upper plate (VL).

Polarized Plate Tectonics 33 Figure 22 The convergence/shortening ratio (C/S) describes how the convergence between two plates is partitioned into subduction and shortening. The different behavior of the subduction hinge determines an increase or a decrease of the subduction rate. Along E- (or NE-) directed subduction zones, the C/S is larger than 1 and the convergence rate contributes to contraction and subduction. Along the opposite W-directed subduction zones the convergence rate adds to the hinge divergence rate and C/S < 1.

Therefore, their different characters are less known. However, they have specific signatures, which are listed in Figure 30. They have an arcuate shape of the frontal part, whereas the backarc basin shows an opposite convexity. They are short lived (usually <50 Ma) and are associated to a backarc development; they may occur only if there is a thinned and heavier, possibly oceanic, lithosphere to the east of a lighter and thicker lithosphere; they present a new generated Moho in the hanging wall of the slab and they show the magmatic pair alkalineecalc-alkaline magmatism, etc.
