... aragonite suggesting that at least part of the Takla Group may have also undergone high pressure – low temperature metamorphism.The evolution of the 450 km fault zone is discussed and a model is proposed which involves right lateral transform faulting on the Pinchi Fault and underthrusting along northerly...

... the intersection of transform faults with axes of sea-floor spreading show evidence of hydrothermal circulation in basement rocks. One of these depressions appears to have been subjected to a recent bottom-water temperature change which severely biases the heat-flow data. Some of the evidence suggests...

...IVAR B. RAMBERG; TJEERD H. VAN ANDEL Abstract In the FAMOUS area on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, four rift-valley segments trend slightly east of north and are separated by short right-lateral transform faults. From north to south, the valleys are designated rift valleys 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively...

...Michael S. Reichle; George F. Sharman; James N. Brune abstract Sonobuoys have been used in the study of two Gulf of California transform fault aftershock sequences. Uncertainties in epicentral locations are no larger than navigational uncertainties. The first local study of an oceanic transform...

...WILLIAM N. GILLILAND; GARY P. MEYER Abstract A theoretical model and experimental work with cooling wax, as well as a consideration of some faults that were originally cited as transform faults, have suggested that two classes of transform faults exist. They are termed “boundary transform fault...

... in alignment with offset zones of the magnetic-anomaly lineations. The implicit suggestion is that intraplate tectonic activity is common, and that the western extension or “dead traces” of transform faults may provide avenues where the accumulated tectonic energy within the oceanic plate is released...

...George F. Sharman; Michael S. Reichle; James N. Brune Abstract Detailed comparisons of a two-plate tectonic theory with evidence of transform faulting on the North American-Pacific plate boundary in the Gulf of California and on the Rivera Fracture Zone show individual data with as much as 30...

... of transform faults that intersect northwest-trending structural features originally developed along the axis of spreading. We interpret data obtained at Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) sites 62 and 63 as evidence for a late Oligocene cessation of spreading. Subsequent motions of the Pacific and Indian plates...

...MAGNUS S. GARSON; MIROSLAV KRS Abstract Wilson's concept that transform faults were initiated along ancient fractures is supported by evidence from southeastern Egypt. Geophysical and geological investigations have outlined blocks bounded by transverse fractures oriented perpendicular to the Red...

... and Walvis Ridge — by a mantle hot spot and plume is accepted; this theory seems to explain most of the peculiar features of the Walvis Ridge. However, it is probable that the surface expression of the mantle hot spot was controlled by the presence of weak zones in the lithosphere such as transform faults...

...J. W. O'BRYAN; R. COHEN; W. N. GILLILAND Abstract Experimental work based on a combination of Oldenburg and Brune's wax model and Cox's tennis ball experiment suggests a possible origin of the orthogonal mid-ocean system of ridges and transform faults. Various cuts were made in a crust formed...

The trough system that is partially buried with sediment east of the ridge and the north-south Investigator Fracture Zone several hundred kilometers farther to the east are remnants of formerly active transform faults that marked...

... characteristics of sea-floor spreading on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Closely spaced transform faults, generated about 60 m.y. B.P., extend to crust of about 20 m.y. B.P. age. Significantly, however, demonstrable transform faults are nearly absent on ocean crust younger than about 10 to 20 m.y. B.P. Possibly...

... Valley fault zones, respectively. We interpret the Garlock fault as an intracontinental transform structure which separates a northern crustal block distended by late Cenozoic basin and range faulting from a southern, Mojave block much less affected by dilational tectonics. Earlier ideas that the Garlock...

... and Americas plates were apparently fragmented so that basins originated as irregular pull-aparts. Basin walls were formed by both transform faults and by crustal stretching and dip-slip faulting. Deep basin floors grew as a complex of volcanic rocks and sediments. As basins enlarged, high-standing blocks...
