Geophysical interpretations of the Libby thrust belt, northwestern Montana (DLC) (OCoLC) Material Type: Document, Government publication, National government publication, Internet resource: Document Type: Internet Resource, Computer File: All Authors / Contributors: M Dean Kleinkopf; Geological Survey (U.S.). northwestern corner of Montana has led to the definition of a pre­ viously unrecognized thrust belt. The zone, herein named the Libby thrust belt, is a complex of thrust and high-angle normal and reverse faults about 15 mi wide and mi long that extends southerly Cited by: 9.   1 INTRODUCTION. The Yakima fold and thrust belt (YFTB) is an actively deforming series of faults and folds in northern Oregon and south-central Washington in the northwestern United States (Fig. 1).Through it runs the Olympic-Wallowa Lineament (OWL; Raisz ), an alignment of topographic features that extends from eastern Oregon into the Puget Sound region of by: 8. Summary This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction Geologic and Tectonic Setting Structural Transect Across the Central Yakataga Fold‐and‐Thrust Belt Age and Rate of Deformation Tectonic I Cited by:

In order to address this problem, the Enterprise Oil company recently acquired a wide-angle land data set, with closely spaced sources (60 m) and receivers (90 m), along a test line in the Author: Paolo Dell’Aversana.   1 Introduction. Fold‐and‐thrust belts are long‐term products of convergent plate boundaries and are associated with many of the world's largest earthquakes (e.g., Chile, Cisternas et al., ; Alaska, Plafker, ; Sumatra, Ammon et al., ; and Japan, Simons et al., ).A better understanding of in situ stress, compaction, and pore pressure in fold‐and Cited by: 6. The Mesoproterozoic Belt-Purcell Basin dominates the geology of the northern Rocky Mountains of Montana and parts of Idaho, Washington, British Columbia, and Alberta (Price, ; Harrison, ; Winston, a; Lydon, ).The basin was one of Professor Price's great research interests, and over the past half-century, he and his students and colleagues have contributed greatly to our. An introductory chapter briefly reviews Montana's geology followed by a series of road guides with the local particulars. The authors tell you what the rocks are and what they mean. Useful graphics and charts supplement the text and help you to understa.

Montana thrust belt from the Lewis and Clark line shear zone northeast to the Rocky Mountain front, from west-central Montana to southern Canada (figs. 1, 2). The slab is. Fold and thrust belts occur worldwide and have long been the focus of research of structural geologists. They have formed in all eras of geological time and, represent some of the planet’s most complex geological environments. This three-day meeting aims to bring together leading academic and industry geoscientists to discuss new techniques and case studies, and to capture an up to date.   Dr. Eric Erslev, University of Wyoming Novem Ten months in Libby prison by: Cesnola, Luigi Palma di, Published: () Prison-life in the tobacco warehouse at Richmond by: Harris, William C.
