Transcurrent Tectonics: Strike-Slip Termination.
On the right, Landsat image of the Salina del Fraille, a pull apart basin in the Andes. Below conceptual examples of termination of strike slip fault.
<= Physical experiment (© McClay) involving the opening of an oblique rift in a transtensional strain regime (plate motion with an angle to the plate boundaries). In the center of the basin note the relationship between normal faults and strike-slip faults.
