Abstract

"An interesting instance of faulting in which a failure initiated as a 'reverse diagonal shear' (with reference to the stratified rocks in which it occurs) passes downward into a 'bedding plane shear' along the limb of the slight anticlinal flexure which presumably played a part in determining the location at which the initial failure occurred. It is also interesting because the tilting of the entire mass of strata is such that the upper part of the fault is now almost precisely vertical."
