... the processes of collapse and subsequent diffusion that are responsible for the formation of a colluvial wedge, we suggest that the two paleoscarps were similar in height to the 1999 scarp. This similarity supports the concept of characteristic slip, at least for this location along the fault. Accelerator mass...

overlapping paleoscarps (blue arrows), which offset an old alluvial surface (red arrows). The prominent paleoscarp has ∼4 m of vertical offset and likely represents the principal displacement scarp from the penultimate event ( Hernandez Flores et al., 2013 ). However, in the 2010 EMC event a principal

.... The different omission features include: 1) planar erosional bedding tops, 2) scalloped erosional surfaces, 3) knobs, ridges, and swales at bedding contacts, and 4) paleoscarps. An interpretation is proposed that relates specific styles of omission surface to different diagenetic–depositional processes...

... with associated fissure fills, folding, angular unconformities, and pinching of strata against a paleoscarp. All of the event horizons occur at the tops of paleosols and are overlain by massive lacustrine clay units. We interpret this pattern to represent development of soils at the surface between earthquakes...

.... Our data provide new evidence of increased storm activity (most likely frequency and/or intensity of extratropical storms) during the past 500 yr, which was preceded by a relatively calm period lasting ∼1000 yr. The width of the coastal sequence preserved between successive paleoscarps shows strong...

...Philippe Artru Abstract The upper Bajocian (middle Jurassic) heterogeneous polygene breccias of the Riou d'Entraix (southeast France) are interpreted as olistostromes formed by gravity sliding along a paleoscarp. The scarp was to the east, in the area presently covered by overthrusts, and separated...
