Abstract

The AA. investigated quantitatively the propagation of a reactivated strike-slip fault through a sedimentary cover with 5 simplified analogue models that reproduce a chain with its frontal allochtonous wedge overrunning the foreland. The results show that the geological setting is strongly influenced by the presence of a reactivated preexisting lineament, that ultimately controls the development and pattern of newly-formed faults. Finally, the AA. present and discuss two natural examples (in Italy Molise-Gondola shear zone, Southern Apennines, and Scicli-Ragusa line, Sicily) in view of the modeling results. - (NF)
