Provides a modern synthesis on foreland basin sequence stratigraphy and structural geology. Includes the foothills, foreland basins of the Northwestern Alps,Pyrenees and Betic thrust belts. The multidisciplinary approach includes both sedimentological and structural studies plus numerical modelling as a tool to quantifyand integrate the geological data.

Introduction: why forelands? • Geophysical and geological constraints on the evolution of the Guadalquivir foreland basin (Spain) • Lateral diapiric emplacement of triassic evaporites at the southern margin of the Guadalquivir basin, Spain • Alluvial gravel sedimentation in a contractional growth fold setting, Sant Llorenc de Morunys, south-eastern Pyrenees • Quantified vertical motions and tectonic evolution of the SE Pyrenean foreland basin • Cyclicity and basin axis shift in a piggyback basin: towards modelling of the Eocene tremp-ager basin, South Pyrenees, Spain • Fluid migration during Eocene thrust emplacement in the south Pyranean foreland basin •Spain): an integrated structural, mineralogical and geochemical approach • Sequential restoration of the external Alpine Digne thrust system, SE France, constrained by kinematic data and synorogenic sediments • History and deformation rates of a thrust sheet top basin: the Barreme basin, western Alps, SE France • Thin-skin inversion tectonics at oblique basin margins: example of the western Vercors and Chartreuse Subalpine massifs (SE France) •Horizontal shortening control of Middle Miocene marine siliciclastic accumulation - Upper Marine Molasse - in the southern termination of the Savoy Molasse Basin (northwestern Alps/southern Jura) • Evolution of the western Swiss Molasse basin: structural relations with the Alps and the Jura belt • Eustatic versus tectonic controls on Alpine foreland basin fill: sequence stratigraphy and subsidence analysis in the SE German Molasse • Reservoir analog modelling of sandy tidal sediments, Upper Marine Molasse, SW Germany, Alpine foreland basin • Tectono-stratigraphy and hydrocarbons in the molasse foredeep of Salzburg, upper and lower Austria • Automation of stratigraphic simulations -quasi-backward modelling using genetic algorithms • Numerical modelling of growth strata and grain-size distributions associated with fault-bend folding • Flexure and ‘unflexure’ of the north Alpine German–Austrian molasse basin: constraints from forward tectonic modelling
