Out of Sequence Thrusting in Coulomb Wedges
Saad Haq, Purdue University The theory of Critical Coulomb wedges in conjunction with scaled analog models has been successful in explaining the pattern of deformation in accretionary prisms and thin-skinned fold ...

The Reactivation of the Lost Lakes Fault in Yosemite National Park (USA): When Did it Happen and What Does it Mean?
Richard Becker, UW-Madison Basil Tikoff, UW-Madison David Greene, Denison University The Lost Lakes Fault is an 8 km long NW-striking structure that parallels the Sierra Crest in Yosemite National Park. The ...

Late Cenozoic Tectonic Development of the Eastern Achara-Trialeti Fold and Thrust Belt, South-East Georgia

Rotation Statistics in Structural Geology
Joshua Davis, Carleton College Sarah Titus, Carleton College Basil Tikoff, University of Wisconsin - Madison Many geologic data are geometric in nature, consisting not just of numbers but also of directions, ...

Fault Surface Geometry, Wear Processes and Evolution: Implications for Earthquake Mechanics and Fault Rock Rheology
James Kirkpatrick, Colorado State University Kate Shervais, Colorado State University To investigate how fault geometry impacts fault surface stresses, strain localization and wear during deformation, we use ...

Determining Hillslope-scale Material Strength from Seismically-triggered Landslide Events
Marin Clark, University of Michigan Sean Gallen, University of Michigan Natural hillslope strength or slope stability, relevant for landscape evolution and hazard assessment, falls far short of laboratory ...

Paleocene Paleoelevations of the Basin and Range from Clumped Isotope Thermometry and Paleosol Geochemistry: A Modest Nevadaplano?
Nathan Niemi, University of Michigan The Basin and Range Province of the western United States is one of the premier examples of diffuse continental extension in the world. Estimates of extension across the Basin ...

Uplift and Seismicity Driven by Groundwater Depletion in Central California
Colin Amos, Western Washington University Pascal Audet, University of Ottawa William Hammond, Nevada Geodetic Laboratory, Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, and Nevada Seismological Laboratory Roland Burgmann, ...

Why Should I Care About Your Slop? Linking Shallow Geologic Observations to Deeper Earth Processes
Rich Briggs, US Geological Survey Geoscientists draw on many powerful tools and techniques to document surface deformation. Ideally these observations help illuminate deeper Earth processes. However, the ...

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 ...
