  3. 3. The effects of basal friction and basement configuration on deformation of fold-and-thrust belts: insights from analogue modeling

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Kai Xue; [2012]
    Keywords : basal configuration; basal friction; analogue modeling; fold-and-thrust belts;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses the effects of basal friction and basement configuration on the deformation of the fold-and-thrust belts in convergent zones. A series of analogue models were conducted with adjacent different basal configuration and frictional properties to observe and gain a better understanding of these basal effects and their interactions.
