Deformation of the Continental Crust: The Legacy of Mike by A C Ries, R W H Butler and R H Graham, A. C. Ries, R. W. H.

By A C Ries, R W H Butler and R H Graham, A. C. Ries, R. W. H. Butler, R. H. Graham

This unique booklet, in reminiscence and get together of the paintings of Professor Mike Coward, is set the deformation of the continental lithosphere. The amassed papers speak about geometry, structural rules, methods and difficulties in quite a lot of tectonic settings and thereby mirror the breadth of Coward's pursuits. They surround the evolution of Precambrian basement gneiss terrains, the geometry and evolution of thrust platforms, basement involvement and structural inheritance in basins, syn-orogenic extension, salt tectonics, the implication of structural evolution on hydrocarbon prospectivity and structural controls on mineralization. Examples are drawn from the Lewisian and Moine Thrust Belt of NW Scotland, the Italian Apennines, NW Himalayas, the Cyclades, Oman, Zagros Mountains, Colombian Cordillera, Carpathians, North Sea, offshore Brazil, neighborhood stories of the Irumide Belt (central Africa), Taurus Mountains (Turkey), better South the USA, and from the Witwatersrand Basin of South Africa and the Antler Orogeny of SW united states.

G. at E, Fig. 6; see also Fig. 3e). Second, fabrics can differ greatly on either side of even small apophyses, as shown by that, only a few centimetres across, in Figure 6 at F. On its NE side are intense platy fabrics parallel to the contact, but on the SW side the migmatitic banding is at right angles to the contact. This large strain difference is best explained if the apophysis were present and acting as a less competent zone across which deformation was decoupled. However, the dykes have little or no fabric.
