Flume experiments on the horizontal stream offset by strike-slip faults

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Flume experiments, in which the middle section of an erosion channel is displaced horizontally, have been conducted to assess the response of streams to horizontal displacement by a strike-slip fault. The experimental erosion channel was developed in a mixture of sand and clay, at the Hydro-Geomorphology Laboratory, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan. Downstream degradation and upstream aggradation as a response to horizontal displacement by a strike-slip fault cause local convexity in the longitudinal profile. The trace of this convexity remained in the roughly continuous longitudinal profile for a long time
