Figure F19. A. Lower hemisphere equal area projection of normal fault planes (large circles) with striae (solid circles) after paleomagnetic corrections, Hole U1379C. Fault dips are primarily north and south along east–west trending faults. A small number of westward-dipping normal faults are also apparent. Arrows indicate the movement direction of the hanging wall based on the slickenlines on the fault plane. B. Kinematic solution for the population of normal faults in Hole U1379C shown in A with P (compression, red) and T (extension, blue) axes for each fault and compressional (transparent) and associated extensional (gray shaded) quadrants.
