CONTROLS ON DEFORMATION BAND FORMATION ALONG THE MAGHLAQ FAULT, MALTA.
Masterstudent: Knut Ringen Viten
The project aims to describe characteristics of deformation bands in Miocene carbonate grainstones as well as to identify controls on their formation. Methods include field work and detailed micro-analysis of thin sections through optical and scanning electron microscope (SEM). High resolution drone-images have also been collected and used to produce a 2D model of the outcrop, allowing for macro-scaled analysis of deformation band networks.
