Lithospheric deformation on Earth is localized under both brittle and ductile deformation conditions. As high-temperature ductile rheologies are fundamentally strain-rate hardening, the formation of localized ductile shear zones must involve a structural or ...

In this contribution, is presented evidence for ductile E-W extension in the Kung Co area of southern Tibet that took place at ~19 Ma and is associated with a major N-S trending normal fault.

<p>The East Anatolian fault system (EAFS) is the 80-km-wide, 700-km-long, NE trending sinistral strike-slip fault system forming a seismically very active intracontinental transfom fault boundary. It is located between Karlıova County in the northeast and ...

The authors present a numerical modeling study that examines the deformational response of western North America to Baja California and/or Sierra Nevada microplate motion. In particular we study if, and under what condition of microplate motion, shear strain ...

This paper is about the kinematic, kinematic vorticity (Wm), and deformation temperature analyses that were completed to test the hypothesis that midcrustal rocks exposed in the core of the Kangmar gneiss dome, southern Tibet record ductile deformation patterns ...

New detailed microscopic kinematic analyses, deformation temperature estimates, and vorticity analyses within mid-crustal rocks from Mabja Dome show a downward progression from mixedtop-N and top-S shear in chloritoid-zone rocks, through dominantly top-S shear ...
