STRESS SENSITIVITY OF STYLOLITE MORPHOLOGY (2009)

Stylolites are rough surfaces that form by localized stress-induced dissolution. Using a set of limestone rock samples collected at different depths from a vertical section in Cirque de Navacelles (France), in this paper is studied the influence of the lithostatic stress on the stylolites morphology on the basis of a recent morphogenesis model.
