Brittle shear zones/fault zones are usually defined by curved brittle P-planes bound by usually straight Y-planes. These shears may affect as a narrow zone within the rock bodies. Brittle sheared lenses of rocks vary in geometry, and the P-planes may curve only near the Y-planes. Fault gouge zones sometimes contain P-planes that help to deduce the shear sense. - Presence of slickensides. • t - Accumulation of silicate clay that either has formed in the horizon and is subsequently translocated or has been moved into it by illuviation. • w - Development of color or structure in a horizon but with little or no apparent illuvial accumulation of materials. • y - Accumulation of gypsum. • zFile Size: 2MB.
