"Inheritance of penetrative basement anisotropies by extension-oblique faults: Insights from analogue experiments"
The file set includes the results of four analogue experiments on rifting at the
Geodynamic Modelling Laboratory of the School of Earth, Atmosphere and
Environment at Monash University (Australia). The experiments tested the
influence of the width and spacing of penetrative anisotropies in the model
ductile lower crust (also referred to as “basement”) on fault development in
the brittle upper crust (also referred to as “cover”) during a single phase of
orthogonal extension. The experiments were monitored using stereoscopic particle imaging velocimetry (PIV).
