Rapid locking of tectonic magnetic fabrics in weakly deformed mudrocks

Larrasoaña, Juan C.; Gómez-Paccard, Miriam; Giralt, Santiago; Roberts, Andrew


The anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) has provided important insights into early deformation conditions in compressive settings through characterization of tectonic fabrics in mudrocks that appear otherwise undeformed. The validity of these insights relies on the assumption that tectonic fabrics are rapidly locked shortly after sediment deposition. However, the time lag between deposition and the tectonic overprint has yet to be quantified to verify this assumption. Here we present...[Show more]
