  Information - TS1.3 Field and modelling studies of active and fossil fault-related folds

Event Information
In the last two decades, understanding of fault-related folding has grown rapidly, including the theory and methodology of a rich variety of fault-bend folding, fault-propagation folding, and detachment folding mechanisms and their complex superimposed types. Furthermore much current progress is being made on the relationships between folding, sedimentation and erosion and on the mechanics of fault-related folding, based on field, analogue and numerical modelling of structures. Additional new insight is coming from studies of Holocene growth of active structures and incremental fold growth in large earthquakes. Fault-related folding concepts have been widely applied in the petroleum industry and are also a growing area of research in earthquake hazard prediction and active tectonics. We propose to bring together scientists from all aspects of fault-related folding (compression-, extension-, and inversion-related structures) to review the current state of knowledge and to address fundamental questions yet to be solved, for which an integrated, multidisciplinary approach is necessary. Contributions are thus welcome from all disciplines dealing with fault-related folding, in order to have a wide variety of field, theoretical, numerical, and analogue studies.
