Friday fold: Pofadder shear zone mylonites in 3D
Posted by Callan Bentley
Christie Rowe sent me these two images. They were taken by Ben Melosh and Louis Smit. The folded layers are mylonites of the Pofadder Shear Zone in South Africa.
I love it when folds are expressed not only in profile, but also in three dimensions. Nothing in life could possibly be better.
We’ve featured the Pofadder Shear Zone’s folded mylonites before – and that time, too, they came from a student of Christie Rowe’s!
