The structure of the Qinling Shan mountain range (Shaanxi, China) involves major east-south-east strike-slip faults. Field observations made during two expeditions in 1983 and 1984 show that the faults are active and may have undergone several tens of kilometres of post-Eocene left-lateral displacement. The faults cut the morphology sharply and offset left-laterally small channels. Their trace is marked by cataclastic to mylonitic non-coaxial deformation zones at least 50–100 m wide. The… Expand
