Fluid-rock interaction in faults of the San Andreas system: Inferences from San Gabriel fault rock geochemistry and microstructures Academic Article uri icon


  • Optical and scanning electron microscopy and whole rock geochemical analyses are used to investigate variations in deformation mechanisms and fluid-rock interactions in rocks at three sites on the San Gabriel fault, southern California: Pacoima Cayon, Bear Creek, and North Fork. Overall, the results imply local and regional-scale variations in the hydrologic setting along the San Gabriel fault that produced contrasting styles of deformation and fluid-rock interactions. -from Authors
