    Under a tectonic regime characterized by an effective stresses ellipsoid with 1 horizontal and 3 vertical (fig. 8), without basement involved (see Table I), the sediments (with and an interbedded salt layer), will be lengthened by cylindrical-folds and reverse or thrust-faults. As the basement is not involved and as a mobile layer (salt layer. Structural Geology and Tectonics: Research topics include salt tectonics and shale tectonics on passive, active, and strike-slip continental margins, especially in West Africa, Trinidad, and the Gulf of Mexico. uses geomechanical and structural-diagenetic models to predict fracture architecture from limited subsurface samples.

Many passive margins and intracratonic basins have petroleum systems directly linked to salt tectonics, which plays a fundamental role in creating, modifying, and destroying possible hydrocarbon traps Salt tectonics and basement fractures book et al.

; Jenyon ).The intimate relationship between halokinesis and hydrocarbons has led both the petroleum industry and research institutions to sustain continued investments. The reader is also referred to the textbook "Salt Tectonics: Principles and Practice" (Jackson and Hudec, ) for a detailed overview of salt tectonics that includes numerous analog models of.

The Upper Silurian Salina Group in Pennsylvania's Appalachian basin consists of several hundred feet of highly deformable and mobile salt that was a significant influence on the tectonic and structural development of the Appalachian Mountains during the late Paleozoic.

Understanding how halokinesis and décollement thrusting of the Salina Group has contributed to the present-day structure of Author: M. Harding, C. Rowan. Fracture systems Macrofractures Tectonic fractures: • CtiContinuous • Partly continuous • Bounding • Fractures in breciated zones • Fractures with associated vu gs 9Dip angle: o 9Variable fracture aperture 9Fractures are partly to totally filled with secondary minerals 9Fracture density are reduced with depth and distance from fault.

Michael R. Hudec, Martin P.A. Jackson, in Regional Geology and Tectonics: Phanerozoic Passive Margins, Cratonic Basins and Global Tectonic Maps, Why study salt tectonics. Salt tectonics receives little attention in most structural geology texts, possibly owing to the paucity of high-quality, accessible salt exposures in the world.

Nonetheless, salt tectonics is of major interest to many. Improved understanding of the interaction between basement structure, salt tectonics, and depositional systems can be of great value in tract evaluation and resource assessment, particularly in subsalt areas or under-explored, emerging plays.

Salt Tectonics News & Updates; New Publications The faulting and uplifting of basement blocks controlled the location of salt structures. The differences in the geometries of salt structures in different regions show that the thickness of the salt sequences has an important influence on the development of salt-cored detachment folds and.

Salt Tectonics Unchallenged leaders in their eld of research, the authors provide a much needed comprehensive overview of salt tectonics. This book is truly unique and will have a long shelf lif e, a must-have for anyone studying and interpreting salt structures found on land or inundated o shore.

above the complex Taurus-Pontides suture. From Late Eocene to Late Miocene salt deposition, salt tectonics and salt reworking occur in a north-verging foreland fold-and-thrust belt setting north of the Taurus.

The result is an intricate system of salt ridges, minibasins, salt sheets and successive canopies. Terra Infirma: understanding Salt Tectonics salt typically acts as a detachment in both gravity-driven and basement-involved extension. In compression or transpression, preexisting diapirs are. Evaporites have been deposited in four main settings: (1) cratonic basins (), (2) synrift basins (), (3) postrift passive margins (), and (4) continental collision zones and foreland basins ().About of these evaporite basins have been affected by salt tectonics (), defined as deformation involving flow of tectonics can involve regional extension and shortening or can comprise Cited by: Tectonics presents original research articles that describe and explain the evolution, structure, and deformation of Earth’s lithosphere including across the range of geologic time.

Lavishly illustrated in color, this textbook takes an applied approach to introduce undergraduate students to the basic principles of structural geology.

The book provides unique links to industry applications in the upper crust, including petroleum and groundwater geology, which highlight the importance of structural geology in exploration and exploitation of petroleum and water resources.5/5(5).
