Segmented fault in Iceland

Segmented fault in Iceland

Fig. 4. Aerial view of a part of the western boundary fault of a graben in the Holocene rift zone in North Iceland. Fault segments link up through hook-shaped (curved) fractures, with mixed-mode (partly tension, partly shear) fractures in-between (cf. Gudmundsson, 2011, Rock Fractures in Geological Processes, cited).
