The Coast Ranges of southern Chile are underlain for the most part by a variably metamorphosed subduction complex of late Paleozoic age. In a contribution to IGCP 279, "Terranes in Latin America,' the author reviews the depositional and metamorphic development of this huge accretionary unit developed in the Gondwana continental margin. South to north transport of the accreted material parallel to the continental margin may prove to have been an important tectonic process in the region. -Journal summary
