GE177b- Objectives. Introduce a variety of techniques to describe ‘quantitatively’ deformation of the lithosphere and fault slip history. Introduce the basic mechanisms governing lithospheric deformation and conceptual models of the ‘seismic cycle’.

I will try to lead you to think not only in terms of kinematics but also in terms of stress and rheology.
At the end of the class you should be able
deformation is distributed
Velocities relative to Eurasia,
Bettinelli et al (2006), Calais et al (2006), Simons et al (2007), Gan et al (2007), Chlieh et al (2010)
The response is in the landscape
Isostatic response to valley deepening might lead to peak uplift (England and Molnar, 1990)…
(Copley et al, 2010)
Secular deformation might result from slip on the thrust fault and distributed deformation within the orogenic wedge
