English term or phrase:RIDGE PUSH, SLAB PULL
RIDGE PUSH: The process by which an oceanic plate slides down the slope of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary.
SLAB PULL: When an oceanic plate collides with a continental plate, the oceanic plate is forced down into the asthenosphere.
Explanation: Ricardo, this is just an educated guess. "Oceanic ridge" is translated as "dorsal oceánica" in Eurodicatom... por lo tanto yo diria que "ridge push" se podria traducir como "empuje dorsal oceanico"
slab pull= pull can algo mean=grieta por contraccion... aparte de tiro, arranque, estiron, desgarro...
slab pull is perhaps desgarro de las lanchas (o planchas). Hope someone has some good references for you.
Happy translating ;o)
