Structural fabrics along the northern margin of the Wichita uplift, southwestern Oklahoma, are compared with depositional patterns in the adjacent Anadarko basin. The Frontal fault zone, the structural transition between the uplift and basin, is divisible into three segments that reflect the partitioning of deformation along the northern margin of the uplift. Variations in Pennsylvanian isopach patterns within the Anadarko basin suggest changing conditions of tectonic loading along the basin's southern margin. Anomalously thin sections of syntectonic rocks in the deep basin are interpreted to have been deposited on the crests of growing anticlines.
