Abstract

Internal structures and preferred orientation of halite crystals in Grand Saline salt dome, Texas, and Winnfield salt dome, Louisiana, indicate emplacement of the stocks by successive differential movement of spines and lobes. Differences in intensity of shear folding and varied degrees of preferred orientation in these and other Gulf Coast salt domes suggest that mines within the domes are at different structural levels and that movement of the salt has, in some cases, been very complex. Study of the preferred orientation of bedded salt from Oklahoma showed that it increases with depth.
