... Pisco Basin sedimentary strata exposed in the Ica desert, southern Peru. Gypsum veins vary considerably in dimensions, attitudes and timing, and can develop in layered and moderately fractured rocks also in the absence of evaporitic layers. Veins occur both as diffuse features, confined to certain...
