AbstractWe first describe the methodology for a two-dimensional, elastic deformable microplate modeling approach for continental plate boundaries. Deformable microplate models combine discrete slip on microplate boundaries (faults) with continuous deformation in block interiors. Two idealized models simulating continental collision are presented, one with two microplates and one with four microplates.
