Analogue modeling of transfer zones in fold and thrust belts: a 4-D analysis
This resource is a 2002 article in the on-line journal "Virtual Explorer." The site features text and numerous animations of analogue modeling experiments of fold and thrust belts. Topics include the effects of a thin viscous layer on structural evolution, brittle-viscous and brittle rheological domains, transfer zones, and lateral and oblique ramps. These animations provide a students and teachers an effective means to visualize processes in structural geology.
