Download E-books The Nature and Tectonic Significance of Fault Zone Weakening (Geological Society Special Publication, No. 186) PDF

By R. E. Holdsworth, R. A. Strachan, J. Magloughlin, R. J. Knipe

Many faults seem to shape continual zones of weak spot that essentially effect the distribution, structure and move styles of crustal-scale deformation and linked method in either continental and oceanic areas. This booklet brings jointly papers by means of a global workforce of Earth Scientists to debate a extensive variety of subject matters targeted upon the controls of fault weakening and the position of such faults in the course of lithosphere deformation. Readership:Academic structural-tectonic geologists, microstructural geologists, rheologists, geophysicists and other people learning geodynamics. additionally, petroleum geologists, hardrock geologists, mining geologists, hydrogeologists and metamorphic geologists. appropriate for postgraduate scholars.
