A single upright, open anticline from sub-greenschist facies sedimentary rocks of the Bude Formation (Cornwall, UK) was sampled in order to investigate the kinematic relationships between fold development and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS). The mean magnetic susceptibility of these samples is 0.25 × 10−3 SI, suggesting low concentrations of ferromagnetic phases. AMS ellipsoids have a mean corrected anisotropy degree of 1.03 and a mean shape parameter of −0.54 (prolate). Kmin and Kint define a girdle distribution striking sub-parallel to the fold axial plane, with Kmin tending to cluster around the fold axis. Kmax...
