STRUCTURAL AND METAMORPHIC EVOLUTION OF THE MELUR MIGMATITES, IN MELUR REGION, MADURAI DISTRICT,TAMIL NADU (2014)
<p>The Southern Granulite Terrain (SGT) is one of the best-exposed granulite terrains suited to address some fundamental problems concerning the origin and development of granulites. The contact between Dharwar craton and the SGT is marked by a series of crustal ...
QUATERNARY FAULTING IN QUEEN VALLEY, CALIFORNIA-NEVADA: IMPLICATIONS FOR KINEMATICS OF FAULT-SLIP TRANSFER IN THE EASTERN CALIFORNIA SHEAR ZONE-WALKER LANE BELT (2009)
In this paper new geologic map, tectonic, geomorphologic, and terrestrial cosmogenic nuclide(TCN) geochronologic data document the geometry, style, kinematics, and slip rates on late Quaternary faults within the Queen Valley, California-Nevada area.
DEFORMATION AND KINEMATICS IN A MELT-BEARING SHEAR ZONEFROM THE WESTERN BETIC CORDILLERAS (SOUTHERN SPAIN) (2008)
This work deals with the structural evolution and kinematics of the basal dynamothermal aureole of the Ronda peridotites, located in the Sierra Bermeja massif of the Western Betic Cordilleras, in southern Spain.
LATE QUATERNARY SLIP RATES ALONG THE SIERRA NEVADA FRONTAL FAULTZONE, CALIFORNIA: SLIP PARTITIONING ACROSS THE WESTERN MARGIN OF THEEASTERN CALIFORNIA SHEAR ZONE - BASIN AND RANGE PROVINCE (2007)
This paper is about new geologic mapping, tectonic geomorphologic, and cosmogenic radionuclide geochronologic data that provide the first numerical constraints on late Quaternary vertical slip and horizontal extension rates across the southern Sierra Nevada ...
THE SOTTUNGA-JURMO SHEAR ZONESTRUCTURE AND DEFORMATION HISTORY OF ACRUSTAL-SCALE DUCTILE SHEAR ZONE INSW FINLAND (2007)
The aim of this study is to gain a better understanding of the structure and the deformation history of a NW-SE trending regional, crustal-scale shear structure in the land archipelago, SW Finland, called the Sottunga-Jurmo shear zone (SJSZ).
DEFORMATION AND RECRYSTALLIZATION MECHANISMS IN MYLONITIC SHEARZONES IN NATURALLY DEFORMED EXTRUSIVE EOCENEEOLIGOCENEROCKSALT FROM EYVANEKEY PLATEAU AND GARMSARHILLS (CENTRAL IRAN) (2006)
Study of microstructural processes in mylonitic zones with thin sections.
Field observations of mature crustal faults suggest that slip in individual events occurs primarily within a thin shear zone, <1-5 mm, within a finely granulated, ultracataclastic fault core. This paper deals with the weakening processes during fault slip ...
A crustal-scale shear zone network at the fossil brittle-to-viscous transition exposed at Cap de Creus, NE Spain evolved by coeval fracturing and viscous, mylonitic overprinting of an existing foliation.
STRAIN LOCALIZATION AND FLUID PATHWAYS IN MYLONITE:INFERENCES FROM IN SITU DEFORMATION OF A WATER-BEARINGQUARTZ ANALOGUE (NORCAMPHOR) (2000)
In this paper, we report a series of deformation experiments on polycrystalline norcamphor, a quartz analogue material, that were designed to characterize the relationship between strain localization and fluid migration in crustal rocks undergoing mylonitic ...
<p>A study of the Kapdag Peninsula shear zone. The zone is a W-to NW-trending, moderately to steeply dipping, sinistral strike-slip shear zone that runs almost parallel to the northern coast of the peninsula.</p>
