Figure F45. Distribution of fractures, Hole U1372A. Fractures are most common in rheologically hard lava flows and are scarce to nonexistent in volcaniclastic rocks, particularly in Units XV and XVI and the lower portion of Unit XIV. In Unit II (conglomerate and breccia), fractures were only measured within clasts. For explanation of lithology symbols, see Figure F18.
