  • 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… CONTINUE READING
