Abstract

During the past decade, much discussion was focused on the minimum dip that a plane of weakness must have to be reactivated as a normal fault. In this study, the ranges of orientations (strike and dip) of the planes of weakness that will reactivate under different stress regimes and diverse crustal conditions, are calculated… in order to continue, download the full paper in PDF.
