Title: Individualism of Orogenies Suggested by Experimental Data

Author(s): Theodore A. Link (2)


A general discussion of the individualism of orogenic units as emphasized by experimental results is presented. The results of two experiments in which a very slight change in the artificial sediments used caused two very dissimilar miniature uplifts are given. The features of one of these uplifts were comparable with typical Foothills structure as found in Alberta. Additional criteria for distinguishing between individual over- and under-thrust faults are also submitted for consideration.
