The correlation between the displacement and thickness of faults is an important parameter that enables an increased understanding of the processes involved in fault growth and earthquake generation. We determined this correlation by measuring the thicknesses of outcropping faults and using vitrinite reflectance (Ro) to determine paleotemperature estimates for the hangingwall and footwall units of 18 faults exposed in the Upper Cretaceous Shimanto accretionary complex of southeast Kochi… CONTINUE READING
