Deformation structures; Tectonic structures
Geological structures are defined geometrically as features superimposed on rocks and landforms through the action of stresses arising from inherent Earth forces, gravity, and/or temperature, which distort rocks and change their original form and shape, as well as their location. Such changes referred to as deformation may occur from submicroscopic to regional scales.
Grateful thanks to Jerry DeGraff for reviewing the manuscript and helpful suggestions. Special thanks to Nasima for her patient support and cooperation during the winter vacations.
