Reinterpretation of the active faulting in central Mongolia

Abstract:

We present remote-sensing and field observations of an ∼350-km-long east-west left-lateral strike-slip fault (the South Hangay fault) in the Hangay Mountains of central Mongolia, an area previously believed to be deforming solely by slip on scattered, and randomly oriented, normal faults. The known dip-slip faults are shown to be short segments introduced at bends in the much longer strike-slip fault Our observations show that the active faulting in the Hangay Mountains is consistent with the...
