Inversion of synrift normal faults in the High Atlas Mountains, Morocco
Beauchamp, W.; Barazangi, M.; Demnati, A.; El Alji, M.
Structural inversion related to intracontinental rifting occurs when extensional rift faults reverse their sense of motion during subsequent episodes of compressional tectonics. Features generated by extension, such as half grabens, are uplifted to form positive anticlinal structures.
