GS SP 169 - Forced Folds and Fractures

J. W. Cosgrove and M.S. Ameen

 

The volume provides a detailed study of forced folds generated in a variety of geological situations. It focuses on the geometry and spatial organisation of forced folds and their associated fracture patters and attempts to determine the similarities and differences between these folds and buckle folds. An understanding of the differences between the two fold types (their 3D geometry, spatial organization, fracture patterns etc..) provides an invaluable tool for Earth Scientists concerned with assessing the possible rold of folds and their associated fracture patterns in controlling fluid migration and concentration within the crust. Readership: Hydrocarbon and mining geologists. Geologists and Earth Scientists.
