Abstract : We have proposed earlier a new tectonic model for theevolution of the Andes mountain belt as a bivergent orogen.Here, to reply to a comment by Astini and Dávila 2010, wediscuss briefly the protracted diachronic evolution over tensof million years by propagating deformation at the largescaleover 102–103 km, its influence on basin formationin the back‐arc region retroarc foreland basin, and themechanical implications of the bivergence in the tectonics ofthe fore‐arc region, particularly the possible effects of theunderthrusting of the coastal crustal‐scale rigid block theMarginal Block beneath the West Andean Thrust
