2010). The westward drift of the lithosphere implies that plates have a general sense of motion and that they are not moving randomly. If we accept this postulate, plates move along this trend at different velocities, relative to the mantle, toward the west along the flow line of the TE. In this view, plates would be more or less dragged by the mantle, as a function of the decoupling at their base, the degree of decoupling being mainly controlled by the thickness and viscosity of the asthenosphere.

Similarly the origin of W-directed subduction zones in the Mediterranean (Apennines and Carpathians) and elsewhere in the world can be explained. After Doglioni et al. (1999a). ” The Alpine orogen was stretched and scattered in the Apennines backarc basin. The backarc extension is internally punctuated by necks (subbasins) and boudins, horsts of continental lithosphere. The asymmetric extension in the backarc basin appears controlled by differential drag between the eastward mantle flow and the overlying, passively transported, crustal remnants.

W-directed 32 Carlo Doglioni and Giuliano Panza subduction zones have shorter life (30e40 Ma) than E- or NE-directed subduction zones (even longer than 100 Ma). Therefore, the subduction process appears as a passive feature. Apart from few exceptions, the subduction hinge converges toward the upper plate along E- (or NE-) directed subduction zones, whereas it diverges from the upper plate along W-directed subduction zones accompanying backarc extension. W-directed subduction zones have usually shorter life and their backarc basin is eventually closed and its evolution inverted by an E-ward-directed subduction zone along the eastern margin of the backarc.
