...M KING HUBBERT; WILLIAM W RUBEY Abstract Promise of resolving the paradox of overthrust faulting arises from a consideration of the influence of the pressure of interstitial fluids upon the effective stresses in rocks. If, in a porous rock filled with a fluid at pressure p, the normal and shear...

... the structural front and slip planes permitting for overthrusting of lithologic units to the west prevailed ( Lafferty, 1941 ; Woodward, 1961 ). Later, multiple detachment zones in lithologic units of varying ages were identified and west-vergent thrusts above the Silurian Salina detachment associated with back...

... the application of the method, and several descriptive parameters are estimated for this ancient subsurface system. In the Ormen Lange system, basin-floor fan and distal-slope parameters are well constrained from seismic and well control. However, knowledge of the morphology and relationships between upper slope...

... adjacent to a zone of northwestward overthrusting along the mountain front of the Mérida Andes. To establish the structural and stratigraphic history of the 3-D seismic study area, a series of time slices were constructed at key horizons through the 3-D seismic volume. The ages of units in these time...

... around the rim. Uplift tilted the continental margin and overpowered the influence of the paleoshelf break, causing shortening much farther updip than before uplift. Physical models confirm that this hypothesis is mechanically sound. Our other models had two stacked detachments, each pinned in different...

...Scott J. Wilkins; Stephen J. Naruk Abstract A new quantitative model for calculating the volumes and rates of fault-zone fluid migration during dynamic slip events is developed. This model is based on observations from laboratory rock mechanics experiments of porosity evolution during frictional...

... the algorithm to work correctly on constant velocity layers. Like most ray-tracing algorithms, performance still increases with velocity field smoothness. Head-wave solutions can be found with the Sobolev gradient algorithm, so one obvious application is refraction survey modeling. The first author would...

During this project, only one population of gold grains was examined...

The application of thermochronological methods such as 40 Ar/ 39 Ar, fission-track, and (U-Th)/He dating has significantly advanced our understanding of tectonic unroofing and associated erosional exhumation of upper and middle crustal rocks during...
