  Information - TS8 Continental Strike-Slip Fault Systems: Developmental Processes, Geometrical Complexities and Associated Economic Resources

Event Information
Continental strike-slip fault systems occur in diverse tectonic settings including transform margins, collision-linked intra-plate deformation fields, obliquely convergent arc systems, transfer zones in rift systems, and as tear faults in fold and thrust belts. The initiation and development of strike-slip faults is complex because of the inherited heterogeneity of the lithosphere that they cut, and because of the segmented nature of strike-slip faults and geometrical diversity of stepover zones between segments. In this session, we encourage contributions from workers who are investigating crustal processes associated with strike-slip fault initiation and progressive development. Because strike-slip faults and associated stepovers may localise zones of transpressional and/or transtensional deformation, papers dealing with the geological evolution of restraining and releasing bends and associated economic resources are also encouraged.
