Traditionally, geologists have viewed strike-slip stepover regions as progressively increasing in structural relief with increasing slip along the principal displacement zones (PDZs). In contrast, some stepover regions may migrate along the strike of the PDZs with respect to deposits affected by them, leaving a ‘wake’ of formerly affected deposits trailing the active stepover region. Such stepovers generate comparatively little structural relief at any given location. For restraining bends of this type, little exhumation and erosion takes place at any given location. Another characteristic of migrating stepovers is local tectonic inversion that may migrate along the strike of the PDZs....
