Summary of regional evidence for right-lateral displacement in the western Great Basin
Right-lateral displacement of 80 to 120 miles across the western Great Basin is indicated by the consistent disruption of sedimentary facies and thickness trends of formations ranging in age from late Precambrian to Mesozoic. Some of this displacement occurs as fault slip and some as a more pervasive large-scale drag (oroflexural bending).
