Abstract

This dataset documents the measurements accompanying the figures in Parker & Pearson, 2021 (Pre-thrusting stratigraphic control on the transition from a thin- to thick-skinned structural style: an example from the double-decker Idaho-Montana fold-thrust belt).

Methods

Field measurements using Brunton compass (hinge inclinometer). Locations recorded in decimal degrees using a Garmin eTrex (WGS projection).

Usage Notes

Text files can be imported directly to Steronet v. 10.0 (http://www.geo.cornell.edu/geology/faculty/RWA/programs/stereonet.html). For linear features, Trend and Plunge values are recorded in first and second columns. For planar features, Dip Azimuth and Dip values are recorded in first and second columns.

See "Geologic Map of the Northern Part of the Leadore Quadrangle, Lemhi County, Idaho" (T-20-03, 1:24,000 scale) for declanation.
