    This is an oversimplification, because the same section of margin may experience both sediment accretion and subduction erosion throughout its active time span. We almost had to spend the night and arrange hotel rooms. It is a more extensive work than had ever before been undertaken by a single indiidual. Kermadec 2.

    Continental collisions induce mantle flow and extrusion of mantle material, which causes stretching and arc-trench rollback. He wrote that daily tides are related to the Moon 's orbit, while tidal heights vary with the cycles of the Moonand he hypothesized about yearly tidal cycles synchronized with the equinoxes and solstices.

The concept of downwelling at trenches was characterized by Griggs in as the tectogene hypothesis, for which he developed an analogue model using a pair of rotating drums.

Trenches distant from an influx of continental sediments lack an accretionary prism, and the inner slope of such trenches is commonly composed of igneous or metamorphic rocks.
