'This video examines how geologists recognise and map out thrusts, find out which direction and how far they moved, their relative sequences and how they interact to make complex structures. This l...eads into the nature of the fault zones, the transition from seismogenic faulting to ductile shears. We then contrast the styles of deformation with the broad shear zones within the Moine themselves to look at mid crystal deformation. This leads into the nature of reflectors on MOIST etc.'
