Synorogenic Neogene deposits indicate that major thrusts, with east vergence, moved to the east between ~20 Ma ago and present time (Jordan et al., 1993).
The area along the present day thrust front was affected by synorogenic normal faulting within the foreland basin before thrusting began (Blisniuk and Sonder, 1998).
Specific topics include Silurian-bearing terranes of Alaska, the significance of detrital zircons in Upper Devonian ocean-basin strata of the Sonora allochthon and Lower Permian synorogenic strata of Mina Mexico foredeep in central Sonora, and Late Triassic mixed carbonate-volcaniclastic facies of the Olds Ferry terrane in eastern Oregon and western Idaho.
Major regional structural units were formed in the Sudetes, first depositional areas containing local, synorogenic lithological infill developed (Swiebodzice and Bardo basins and initial Intra-Sudetic basin), as well as most significant magmatic intrusions in the region occurred.

Small- and middle-sized rapakivi granite massifs are often located within synorogenic faults within the basement.
This zone, which is bounded on the west by the Asturo-Occidental-Leonesa (West Asturias Leon) zone and on the east by the Santander Mesozoic cap, is characterized by a combination of Paleozoic pre-Carboniferous-series rocks with shallow-water platform sediments consisting of detrital and carbonate formations, and a well-developed synorogenic and post-orogenic Carboniferous horizon (Julivert, 1983).
According to Murphy and Roberts (1997), the majority of showings throughout the region are synorogenic related to post-peak metamorphic Variscan deformation stage.
Inclusion trail geometries in porphyroblasts can help us to thoroughly investigate fine-scale processes involved in crustal-scale mechanics, where synorogenic two- phase collision and exhumation have been proposed.
