Ancient submarine slide and slump deposits in the Devonian flysch of central and northern Maine show considerable variation in fold style, from symmetric to asymmetric to sheath geometries. Building on earlier work by Farrell and Eaton, we suggest that the spectrum of fold styles reflects the degree of simple shear within each slump deposit. We present a stereographic approach to paleoslope analysis that exploits fold hinge attitudes, axial surface attitudes, sheath axes, vergence, S‐ and Z… 
Atlantic-Type Passive Margin Structural Style of the Cretaceous Basin in Northern Tunisia: Paleoslope Reconstruction and Regional Tectonics
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to characterize the configuration of northern Tunisia’s basin during the Cretaceous on the basis of abundant slump folds and frequent synsedimentary faults. The
South Tethyan passive margin paleoslope orientation inferred from soft-sediment deformation and fault kinematic analysis: a case study from the Cretaceous of Borj Cedria area, Tunisia
The Cretaceous outcrops of Borj Cedria-Bou Kournine area belongs to the NE-trending Atlas system of northern Tunisia. This area exposes sub-meridian folds associated with numerous N- to NW-trending
Neoproterozoic slope deposits, Mackenzie Mountains, northwestern Canada: implications for passive-margin development and Ediacaran faunal ecology
The youngest formations of the Neoproterozoic Windermere Supergroup in northwestern Canada (Gametrail, Blueflower, and Risky formations) record the transition from slope to shelf deposition on a

Deformation of sediments and sedimentary rocks
This volume includes the proceedings of an international conference held at University College, London, in April 1985. It presents the mechanisms of sediment deformation and is of interest to
