  Information - TS4 Quantitative analysis of faults and folds

Event Information
Modern structural geology integrates visualization of natural structures with results from mechanical modeling in order to quantitatively map, model, and explain the deformation in the Earth’s lithosphere at all scales. Investigations consider not only the two- and, more recently, the three-dimensional geometries of naturally deformed rocks but also how structures progressively evolve in time. The use of mechanical structural geology concepts, compared to observations of finite geometries made on different scales (e.g. 3D seismic surveys, wells, outcrops, thin sections), leads to an improved understanding of natural structures. This helps to explain and predict the progressive deformation of rocks.
In this session we would like to bring together contributions that focus on both, quantitative mechanical modeling and/or visualization of natural geological structures on all scales and dimensions.
