Finding Active Faults Using Earthquake Focal Mechanisms, Geomorphic Analysis and Field Work (SLAM)
Vincent Cronin, Baylor University Jordan Dickinson, Baylor University The seismo-lineament analysis method (SLAM) uses an earthquake focal mechanism and a DEM or topographic map, along with geomorphic analysis, to ...

Strain Localization (and De-localization?) in Deep Continental Crust: Examples from an Exhumed Section and Remote Observations from Still Deep Crust in North America
Kevin H. Mahan, University of Colorado-Boulder Sean Regan, University of Massachusetts-Amherst Omero P. Orlandini, University of Colorado-Boulder Michael L. Williams, University of Massachusetts-Amherst Vera ...

Relating Lattice Preferred Orientation to Deformational Process Using Statistical Analysis of Symmetry in Orientation Distribution Space
Christopher Thissen, Yale University Mark Brandon, Yale University We introduce and apply a new method for analyzing the symmetry of lattice preferred orientation (LPO) fabrics in deformed rocks. At present, these ...

Belly of the Beast: Detailed Mapping in the Deformation Core of a Quartz-plastic Transitional Zone Fault: Implications for Deep Fault Seismicity on Major Strike Slip Faults
Ben Melosh, McGill University Christie Rowe, McGill University Christopher Gerbi, University of Maine The Pofadder Shear Zone (Namibia-South Africa) is a right lateral, strike-slip structure, exhumed from the ...

Advances in Quantifying Crustal Stress Magnitudes
Steven Kidder, City College New York Recrystallized grain size has been used to quantify the magnitude of the stresses involved in the ductile deformation of rocks for nearly 40 years. While the practice has ...

Damaged Goods in the Marmion Tonalites, Superior Province, Ontario: Deformation Fabrics in a Gold-Bearing Damage Zone.
Nils Backeberg, McGill University Christie Rowe, McGill University The Archean Hammond Reef gold deposit in NW Ontario, Canada, is hosted in the Mesoarchean Marmion tonalite gneisses of the south-central Wabigoon ...
