...Mark G. Steltenpohl Abstract Subhorizontal shear sense along subvertical mylonite zones marking the southeast and northwest flanks of the Pine Mountain belt in Alabama, i.e., the Towaliga, Bartletts Ferry, and Goat Rock fault zones, has been deduced from S-C composite planar fabrics, extensional...

... not continue southeastward beneath the Pine Mountain belt. Rather, these reflections terminate abruptly on the north side of the belt, along the downdip projection of the Towaliga fault. This observation is difficult to reconcile with the basement duplex interpretation traditionally applied to the Pine...

... Piedmont probably marks the southern Appalachian detachment. The detachment appears to be cut off by the Towaliga fault, implying that the Towaliga fault is in part a down-to-the-north normal fault. Intermittent Moho reflections occur at 11–12-s two-way time along the length of the COCORP survey...

... the Alleghanian. Early prethermal peak thrusts formed in the crystalline core, then were subsequently thermally overprinted and annealed. Thrusts that formed late in a metamorphic-deformational sequence have maintained a planar geometry. Many of these thrusts, such as the Brevard and Towaliga faults, were later...

The three faults framing the eastern termination of the window are clearly neither (1) part of the same detachment nor (2) part of the Appalachian detachment...
