English: Figure 0.6. A, The detailed structural elements of a destructive margin, along with the spatial and vertical scales.

In the fore-arc basin (i),(ii) etc refers to the sequence of filling, which contrasts markedly with the accretion in the trench. d, the distance from the volcanic surface to the top of the descending plate, is normally 90 km.
