US Nuclear Regulatory Commission Report, NUREG/CR, 48 pp. Google ScholarCited by:   The Ancestral Rockies were formed as the result of reactivation of the Wichita megashear, a preexisting zone of weakness that extends from southern Oklahoma to eastern Utah. Evans, ).

June R. VanArsdale; C. Ward; Randel Tom Cox; Surface exposures of faults of the Washita Valley fault (WVF. It was found that there are marked changes in lithology and thicknesses of stratigraphic intervals on opposite sides of major structures such as the Sequatchie Valley anticline and the Pine Mountain thrust fault, suggesting that these structures developed along belts which suffered differential movements during early Pennsylvanian sedimentation.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey recently released an updated map of all the fault lines that snake around under Oklahoma, a state that that has received plenty of attention in recent years for its. Within the southern Mississippi embayment the striking Saline River fault zone (SRFZ) was recently recognized from linear river segments, aligned epicenters, fault and fold exposures, sand. central Oklahoma during this time; along its axis, a narrow belt of fault-block mountains, the Nemaha Uplift, extended north from Oklahoma City into Kansas. A broad uplift also occurred at this time in the Ozark region of northeastern Okla-homa. The Morrowan and Atokan uplift resulted in erosion.

Meers Fault is a fault in Oklahoma that extends from Kiowa County to Comanche is marked by a 22–26 kilometers (14–16 mi) long conspicuous fault scarp but the fault extends beyond the ends of this scarp. The Meers fault is part of a group of faults that lie between the Anadarko Basin and the Wichita Mountains.. While the fault was active during the Permian-Cambrian, movement. An online map of United States Quaternary faults (faults that have been active in the last million years) is available via the Quaternary Fault and Fold Database. There is an interactive map application to view the faults online and a separate database search function. KML (Google Earth-type) files and GIS shape files are also available for download from the site. A number of high angles thrust faults were recognized, dominating the older strata close to the Choctaw fault. In the Arbuckle uplift area, southwest of the study area, the Cambrian rift-related rhyolitic rocks are exposed in the hanging wall of the Washita Valley thrust fault, and the Ordovician carbonates are exposed in the footwall.
