Structural and statistical characterization of joints and multi-scale faults in an alternating sandstone and shale turbidite sequence at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory: Implications for their effects on groundwater flow and contaminant transport
This paper describes the properties of faults and fractures in the Upper Cretaceous Chatsworth Formation exposed at Santa Susana Field Laboratory and its surroundings (Simi Hills, California), where groundwater flow and ...

Estudo geológico e geofísico da falha de carnaubais, Bacia Potiguar-RN, e implicações neotectônicas
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do NorteBRUFRNPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Geodinâmica e GeofísicaGeodinâmica; Geofísica, 1998-03-30)
The segment of Carnaubais Fault located in the southeasthern portion of Guamaré Graben (Potiguar Basin) was studied. Several structures were detected and some of them strongly suggest that the last movements in Carnaubais ...
Crack formation on top of propagating reverse faults of the Chuculay Fault System, northern Chile: Insights from field data and numerical modelling
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2008)
Reverse faults in northern Chile have formed 20-300 m high scarps that contain open fractures which occur in a zone of 20-1600 m wide. Two-dimensional numerical models were used to explore the geometrical and mechanical ...

Seismic hazard in low slip rate crustal faults, estimating the characteristic event and the most hazardous zone: study case San Ramon Fault, in southern Andes
(Copernicus Gesellschaft, 2016)
Crustal faults located close to cities may induce catastrophic damages. When recurrence times are in the range of 1000-10000 or higher, actions to mitigate the effects of the associated earthquake are hampered by the lack ...
Dobramentos distensionais e a geometria da falha de Baixa Grande, Graben de Umbuzeiro, Bacia Potiguar (RN)
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do NorteBRUFRNPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Geodinâmica e GeofísicaGeodinâmica; Geofísica, 2005-09-16)
In spite of significant study and exploration of Potiguar Basin, easternmost Brazilian equatorial margin, by the oil industry, its still provides an interesting discussion about its origin and the mechanisms of hydrocarbon ...
Fishes of the Atlantic Rainforest of Boraceia: testimonies of the Quaternary fault reactivation within a Neoproterozoic tectonic province in Southeastern Brazil
(Verlag Dr. Friedrich Pfeil, 2006-06-01)
The upper portion of the Rio Guaratuba, located in the Serra do Mar coastal range of Southeastern Brazil, shows biological and geological evidences of being captured and diverted away from its original course in the direction ...
