Surface restoration as a means to characterize transverse fault slip uncertainty

in: Proc. 26th Gocad Meeting, Nancy

Abstract

There are various methods to restore horizon surfaces, as in cross-section balancing, they may correspond to the simple shear deformation mode or to the flexural slip mode. The first one preserves the distances in a given direction, the second one the length and angle on the bedding surface, i.e. the areas. Based on field examples, we will discuss the dilatation and internal strain directions that could be deduced for these restorations and compare them to fracture data sets.
