... engineers. Mélanges are the most intractable bimrocks (block-in-matrix rocks), complex geological mixtures composed of hard blocks of rocks surrounded by weaker matrix, and are famously exemplified by those within the Franciscan Complex of Northern California. Bimrocks also include olistostromes...

.... As well, there are a confusing number of geological terms for chaotic fabrics: melanges, olistostromes, sedimentary breccias, block-in-matrix mixtures, and so on, all of which I bundle into the geologically neutral term “bimrocks” (short for “block-in-matrix rocks”). The competing theories...

... the slopes are covered by loose colluvium. The colluvium, described as debris accumulated on a long mountain slope ( Leopold and Völkel, 2007 ), is frequently a challenge for researchers given its bimrock-like fabric ( Medley, 2001 , 2002 ). The formation of extensive colluvial deposits on steep slopes...

... this, the strength (or the weakness) of serpentinite mélange might differ owing to the variable amount of exotic blocks in the block-in-matrix structure or bimrock (Lindquist & Goodman, 1994 ). The influence of bimrock rheology on metamorphosed chrome spinel needs further investigation. We would like to thank...

... oceanic crust fragments, dismembered ophiolites and sedimentary exotic blocks in serpentinite matrix. With this in mind the strength of serpentinite mélange might differ owing to the existence of variable amount of exotic blocks in the block-in-matrix structure or bimrock (Lindquist & Goodman, 1994...
