It caused the opening of the Alpine Tethys Ocean and the development in the surrounding areas of distensive
structures such as tectonic highs and lows, transitions from shallow to pelagic platforms, and basins.
Basin fill sequences of the Horton Group resemble those of modern fault-bounded distensive
basins and show no evidence of transtensive behaviour.
Those structures are characterized by normal faults that were originated by distensive
stress generating displaced blocks located on the proximal area (Northeast-Southwest trends and vergence to the Northwest).
Heidegger's insistence on the hyphenation of the word points to his sum upon the distensive
nature of the human way of be-ing.
On a regional scale, it has been assumed that such D3 structures were developed in a distensive
context related to gravitational collapse and generalized extension across the belt (Diez Balda et al., 1995; Rodriguez-Pevida et al., 1990).
1), 300 km wide in a section from Bahia Kino to Moctezuma, without correcting for the tertiary distensive
regional regime produced the formation of new normal faults (N20[degrees]-N40[degrees]) in the Argana, Tizi n'Test and Oued Zat Triassic basins.
tectonic movements during a Triassic and Jurassic first rifting phase, a tilted block mosaic forms the basement of the later epicontinental Jurassic basin.
