Thick-skinned Deformation - Causes - Crustal Flow
... The final type of deformation is crustal flow ... This type of deformation is only able to occur when the crustal material is heated to a very high temperature, approximately 2/3 of its melting temperature ...
Seismic Anisotropy - Crustal Anisotropy
... Crustal anisotropy resulting from aligned cracks can be used to determine the state of stress in the crust, since in many cases, cracks are preferentially aligned with their flat faces ... Crustal anisotropy is very important in the production of oil reservoirs, as the seismically fast directions can indicate preferred directions of fluid flow ... In crustal geophysics, the anisotropy is usually weak this enables a simplification of the expressions for seismic velocities and reflectivities, as functions of ...

... produce model ages for the segregation from the mantle of the melt which formed any crustal rock ... This fractionation would then cause a deviation between the crustal and mantle isotopic evolution lines ... The intersection between these two evolution lines then indicates the crustal formation age ...

... thick-skinned (involving basement rocks) North-South trending crustal shortening in the Cretaceous ... the MFTB are exposed by to later generally East-West trending large-scale crustal extension in the Miocene, through what is known to geologists as the Colorado River Extensional Corridor ... This North-South shortening is anomalous, as crustal shortening in the rest of the North American Cordillera is oriented generally East-West because of the generally East-West compression that was due to the ...
