One of the remarkable tectonic features of the Earth’s crust is the widespread presence of long, approximately straight and geomorphically prominent strike-slip faults which are a kinematic consequence of large-scale motion of plates on a sphere (Wilson 1965). Strike-slip faults form in continental and oceanic transform plate boundaries; in intraplate settings as a continental interior response to a plate collision; and can occur as transfer zones connecting normal faults in rift systems and… CONTINUE READING
