SOME CONSEQUENCES OF Previous HitFAULTINGNext Hit IN THE PRESENCE OF A SALT ROCK INTERVAL

Abstract

Movement (and diapirism) in salt rock is frequently associated with Previous HitfaultingTop. In some cases, as in the Southern North Sea Zechstein, the association is clearly demonstrable. In other cases, more subtle effects occur. There is a variety of phenomena which may be observed under different geological circumstances in the salt-fault association, and this paper discusses some of the more frequently-encountered of these, offering some rather speculative suggestions as to the mechanisms which may be involved.
