SUMMARY Fault grading is expressed by a regular structural sequence of (from top) liquified zone, rubble zone and step-faulted zone, with gradational contacts between these zones and the bottom, but with a sharp boundary at the top. It is interpreted as an effect of strong earthquakes on gradationally compacted muds in quiet water basins. Fault-graded beds are geopetal and paleoslope criteria. If interpreted as seismites they may also be used as paleo-seismograms. 
Deformation of Scottish Quaternary sediment sequences by strong earthquake motions
Summary Deformed Quaternary sand, silt, clay and peat sequences from four localities in Scotland are interpreted as seismites by the deformation history of liquefied, fluidized, slumped, and faulted
Seismically-induced structures in the Quaternary sediments of the NE Fennoscandian Shield: Features and age
Results of studying secondary seismogenic deformations of the vibrational type (termed "seismites") in loose sediments of the north-eastern Baltic Shield (the Kola region) have been provided. The
