Abstract

The distribution of joints, veins and shear fractures in the Montagna dei Fiori overturned anticline is here reported. Two joint sets, longitudinal and transverse to the NNW-SSE anticline axial trend, and a conjugate system of shear fractures, are recognized. The transverse and longitudinal joint sets have a pre-folding development likely related to the foreland/foredeep flexure. The transverse joints were reopened during layer-parallel shortening along with the development of the shear fractures. Then, during syn-folding outer-arc extension and hinge-line culmination fold-axial parallel extension, both the longitudinal and transverse joints were enhanced and reactivated, respectively.© Cambridge University Press 2019
