Minimum offset of 7 km across the Pinaleño Mountains metamorphic core complex is calculated by integrating the shear strains across the exposed width of the mylonite zone. The calculated displacement equals the offset on the associated detachment fault, estimated from offset marker beds. The method of determining displacement by strain integration may be directly applicable to many other metamorphic core complexes.
