Flume experiments on the horizontal stream offset by strike-slip faults

Auteur :
OUCHI, S.

Description :
Flume experiments, in which the middle section of an erosion channel is displaced horizontally, have been conducted to assess the response of streams to horizontal displacement by a strike-slip fault. The experimental erosion channel was developed in a mixture of sand and clay, at the Hydro-Geomorphology Laboratory, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan. Downstream degradation and upstream aggradation as a response to horizontal displacement by a strike-slip fault cause local convexity in the longitudinal profile. The trace of this convexity remained in the roughly continuous longitudinal profile for a long time.
