Abstract
The aim of this dissertation is to quantify scaling relations of strain accumulation in nature on various temporal and spatial scales, in order to characterize the underlying deformation mechanisms [...] Apart from the introduction (Chapter 1), the dissertation is divided into eight further chapters: a review of the common deformation frameworks, scaling relations and their dependence on parameter changes (Chapter 2); a description of the applied methods (Chapter 3); a description of the tectonic setting of the Central Andean plateau (Chapter 4); three scientifi c manuscripts for publication in international peer-reviewed journals (Chapter 5, 6, 7); additional analogue data (Chapter 8); and conclusions with outlook on future research (Chapter 9). The appendix includes all references used in any of the chapters, the deformation database used in Chapter 5, more geostatistical data, data for the sensitivity analysis, a short documentation on all performed granular experiments with set-up sketches, material properties of vise experiments, acknowledgments, and a CV.
