The most pervasive systematic joints hosted by Devonian black shale of the Appalachian Plateau include east-northeast joints and younger northwest-striking cross-fold joints. Both sets were driven exclusively by fluid pressure generated as a consequence of hydrocarbon-related maturation supplemented by subsequent tectonic compaction during the Alleghanian tectonic cycle. In the more deeply buried, proximal region of the Catskill Delta, joints of both sets cross-cut. However, in… Expand
