The volume provides a detailed study of forced folds generated in a variety of geological situations. It focuses on the geometry and spatial organisation of forced folds and their associated fracture patters and attempts to determine the similarities and differences between these folds and buckle folds. An understanding of the differences between the two fold types (their 3D geometry, spatial organization, fracture patterns etc..) provides an invaluable tool for Earth Scientists concerned with assessing the possible rold of folds and their associated fracture patterns in controlling fluid migration and concentration within the crust. Readership: Hydrocarbon and mining geologists. Geologists and Earth Scientists.

A comparison of the geometry, spatial organization and fracture patterns associated with forced folds and buckle folds • Section 1: Numerical analysis and field study of fractures associated with compactional forced folds • Interlayer slip and joint localization in East Kaibab Monocline, Utah: filed evidence and results from numerical modelling • Differential compaction of interbedded sandstone and coal • Forced fold development within Tertiary sediments of the Alba Field, UKCS: evidence of the differential compaction and post-depositional sandstone remobilization • Section 2: Forced Folding in extensional environments • Extentional forced folding and decollement of the pre-rift series along the Rhine-graben and their influence on the geometry of the syn-rift sequences • Displacement transfer and forced folding in the Maritimes basin of Nova Scotia, eastern Canada • Late Quaternary monoclinal folding induced by caldera resurgence at Ischia • Stratal fold patterns adjacent to normal faults: observations from the Gulf of Mexico • Section 3: Forced folding in compressional and strike-slip environments • Effects of Inter-layer slip in model forced folds • Regional tectonics and fracture patterns in the Fall River Formation (Lower Cretaceous) around the Black Hills foreland uplift, western South Dakota and northeastern Wyoming • Geometry of fold arrays in the Silesian Cracovian Region of Southern Poland • Primary and ‘Forced Folds’ of the Colombia River Basalt Province, eastern Washington, USA • Section 4: Temporal and spatial relationship between forced folds and buckle folds, crustal-scale folds and fold/fracture relationships • The interplay of faulting and folding during the evolution of the Zagros deformation belt • Complex metamorphic zonation of the Thaya dome: result of buckling and gravitational collapse of an imbricated nappe sequence • Predicting patterns of strain from three-dimensional fold geometries: neutral surface folds and forced folds • Index
