The fold and thrust belt of the Bolivian Sub-Andes has been a topic of much discussion and debate for the past twenty years. Varying ideas regarding the Sub-Andean zone (SAZ) structural geology have been published, documenting conflicting ideas on the evolution of this complex region. Variations in balanced cross-sections result in a wide range of shortening estimates, thus highlighting the need for accuracy and precision when constructing balanced cross-sections.
