Interpreting the Alignment of Pebbles in Ancient Sedimentary Rocks due to Deformation: Passive, Rigid or Slip?
Cork, Ireland
Oral Presentation
Optional Fields
Numerical maximum likelihood methods derived from mechanical models of pebble (inclusion) behaviour are applied to deformed ancient sediments from Dingle, Co. Kerry. Due to the fortunate occurrence of an independent strain measure it is likely that these sediments were deformed in an unconsolidated state indicating rapid progression from deposition in an extensional environment to deformation in a compressive regime.
