Stage 1 - History of a Foreland Basin

 
History of a Foreland Basin 
 

Stage one occurs before the collision that produces the mountain such as in Stage G to Stage H. In this model the foreland is a divergent continental margin, tectonically very stable, and the drawing above represents the shallow Carbonate environments present there.
     
We can put this cross section into a tectonic context by looking at a tectonic cross section of either an Early Divergent Margin, of Full Divergent Margin
