Fold Annotate.jpg


  1. Briefly discuss, based on outcrop evidence, if the main foliation, which forms the dominant decimetre-scale folds, is a primary or secondary foliation. 
  2. Discuss the geological history of this outcrop. For each deformation structure, discuss briefly if it formed due to brittle or ductile micro-deformation mechanisms (if possible). Please also document any overprinting relationships for relative age determination. 
  3. Use outcrop evidence to discuss if the main folds formed by buckling.
