Style and Timing of Holocene Surface Faulting on the Meers Fault, Southwestern Oklahoma

Anthony J. Crone, Kenneth V. Luza

ABSTRACT

Stratigraphic relations and radiocarbon ages of deposits exposed in several trenches and excavations help to establish the timing, sense of slip, and style of the deformations that resulted from late Holocene surface faulting on the Meers fault in southwestern Oklahoma. The eastern half of the scarp is formed on relatively ductile Permian Hennessey Shale and Quaternary alluvium, whereas the western half is formed on well-lithified, relatively brittle Permian Post Oak Conglomerate in the Slick Hills.
