of identifying characteristic forms of terrain motions, such as the compressive, extensive or transcurrent
The contact between the steeply dipping conglomerate of the Silurian Oak Bay Formation at the base of the Mascarene Group and Cambrian-Ordovician sedimentary rocks of the Cookson Group is generally marked by the Sawyer Brook Fault, along which considerable transcurrent
movement has occurred (Park et al.

Mid-oceanic ridges are composed of spreading segments, offset by fracture zones with transcurrent
motion, and Jan Mayen is located near such a fracture zone.

Los Cayos Basin is considered to be a transpressional basin in which normal and transcurrent
faults interact (Vargas, 2004).
He said, "I like to refer you to an article by Rajiva Wijaesinghe in the Transcurrent
website of 7th of April, on Page 3, paragraph 2 and I Quote: "There is a concerted attempt to remove the most efficient and loyal non-career diplomats.

Zone 4 is characterized by straight northwesttrending form lines reflecting tectonic modification by a major dextral transcurrent
shear zone (Sanborn-Barrie et al.

Thus the open and now dissected folds affecting superficially silicified (silcreted) Cretaceous basin strata in southwest Queensland and adjacent areas have been attributed to transcurrent
movements in the underlying basement that were transmitted into the overlying beds (WOPFNER, 1960).
