The tectonics of Tranquitas : a field study of rift through passive margin development and Laramide deformation in Triassic and Jurassic strata of the Sierra Madre Oriental, NE Mexico
Exposed near Galeana, Nuevo Leon are sedimentary deposits and contemporaneous structures that record the rifting and opening of the Gulf of Mexico, passive-margin development, and Laramide compression in the region. A ...
Tidal signatures in sand prone, tectonically generated Jurassic straits, Scotland
The Mid-Jurassic Bearreraig Formation is superbly well exposed on the Isles of Skye and Raasay in NW Scotland. In southern Skye the Bearreraig displays a spectacular, cyclical hierarchy of sand rich, tide-generated bedforms: ...
Spatial arrangement of deformation bands and processes of formation within porous sandstone : Arches National Park, Utah
Individual deformation bands within porous sandstones reduce permeability and form barriers to fluid flow. A network of deformation bands can destroy reservoir connectivity and impose compartmentalization. Consequently, ...
