This implies that W- versus E-directed subduction zones have shallow and deep decollement planes, respectively. Therefore, having a deeper decollement, the orogens associated to the E-directed subduction zones may uplift deep-seated rocks and large volumes of the lower plate (Figure 27). , diamondbearing eclogites). The larger volumes involved in E- or NE-directed subduction zones determine higher critical taper with respect to the W-direcetd subduction zones (Figure 28). All subduction zones show the flat foreland gradually merging into the trench or beneath the foredeep or foreland basin.

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. In fact, at the present rates of hinge migration of the western Pacific subduction zones, if they were active since the Cretaceous, they would now be in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. , 2007). Consequently, backarc spreading forms in two settings: (1) along the W-directed subduction zones the “normal” backarc is determined by the hinge divergence relative to the upper plate, minus the volume of the accretionary prism, or, (2) in case of scarce or no accretion, minus the volume of the asthenospheric intrusion at the subduction hinge (Doglioni, 2008).

NE-directed) subduction zones show a seismic gap from about 300 to 550 km depth. uk/iscgem), with lines corresponding to the tectonic equator and its related 30 N and 30 S small circles, after Doglioni et al. (2014). These lines cross eight selected subduction zones (black rectangles), four W-directed (Philippine, Izu-Bonin, Ryukyu, Aleutians), and the other four E- (or NE-) directed (South America, Sumatra, Himalaya, Zagros). The depth distribution of the number of earthquakes, grouped in classes of 50 km depth, is shown.
