Sand textural control on shear-enhanced compaction bands in poorly-lithified sandstone
(David Publishing Company, 2014)
Sand textural control on SECB (shear-enhanced compaction band) formation is analyzed combining field observations, detailed material characterization and mechanical testing for poorly lithified sandstone units in Provence ...
Sequential growth of deformation bands in carbonate grainstones in the hangingwall of an active growth fault: Implications for deformation mechanisms in different tectonic regimes
Deformation bands in porous sandstones have been extensively studied for four decades, whereas comparatively less is known about deformation bands in porous carbonate rocks, particularly in extensional settings. Here, we ...
Contractional deformation of porous sandstone: Insights from the Aztec Sandstone, SE Nevada, USA
Contractional deformation of highly porous sandstones is poorly explored, as compared to extensional deformation of such sedimentary rocks. In this work we explore the highly porous Aztec Sandstone in the footwall to the ...
