However, the problem requires knowledge of the change in external boundary conditions, which is difficult or impossible in most cases (see, however, Fossen & Tikoff 1997). A change in convergence angle along an obliquely convergent plate margin is the simplest case that could be modelled very easily (as sequential deformations). g.
