Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a temperature gradient from ∼250 to ∼700°C was determined across the Tonale fault zone using critical syn-kinematic mineral assemblages from the metasedimentary host rocks surrounding deformed quartz veins.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the deformation of two granitic massifs along a dextral wrench fault zone (the South Armorican Shear Zone) is examined at the sample and grain scales.

Journal ArticleDOI
Greg Hirth1, Jan Tullis1
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors used optical and TEM microscopy to identify three regimes of dislocation creep in experimentally deformed quartz aggregates, depending on the relative rates of grain boundary migration, dislocation climb and dislocation production.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Fault zones and fault systems have a key role in the development of the Earth's crust and control the mechanics and fluid flow properties of the crust, and the architecture of sedimentary deposits in basins as discussed by the authors.

1,057 citations

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Berthe et al. as mentioned in this paper proposed two types of foliations in mylonites and mylonitic rocks: (a) S-surfaces related to the accumulation of finite strain and (b) C-surface related to displacement discontinuities or zones of relatively high shear strain.
