on roof falls in North American Late Paleozoic coal basins," International Journal of Coal Geology, vol.
Parallel layer slip to the west is a common feature within the different strata as revealed by slickensides
and striae on bedding planes.
The prominent intersecting slickensides
were observed in Bss horizon of the basalt derived Bidar soil, but only non-intersecting slickensides
were found in both schist derived Hira soil and limestone derived Shahabad soil.
Networks of hair cracks and slickensides
are often present in Ankara clay, and the surfaces of fragments are usually polished and glossy in nature.
Polished pedogenic slickensides
were observed in mudrocks at several levels (178.6 m, 189.7 m, and 1027.3 m) and curved vertic structures with up to 0.5 m of vertical extent are present in blocky red mudrocks at 39.5 m.
Whereas [D.sub.1] and [D.sub.2] developed under amphibolite and greenschist facies metamorphic conditions, [D.sub.3] represents an event leading to the development of kink bands, localized shear zones, and slickensides
along the thrust sheet of the Qatruyeh area .
Along the southern wall of the road cut, one can see prominent sub-horizontal slickensides
carved into a highly fractured and brecciated cream- colored carbonate, indicating perhaps a shallow depth of deformation (Figs.
The claystone of the overlying Lontova Stage is disturbed by numerous slickensides
increasing upwards in number.
In the case of Vertisols, the presence of smectites is responsible for their unique morphological properties, such as the clay content (>30%), shrink-swell activities, presence of slickensides
, wedge-shaped peds, and gilgai microrelief.
