This field trip will visit selected exposures of structures in the HVB to examine the structures of the belt at all scales. The stops illustrate the relationships between deformation style and stratigraphy. Exposures of a thin-skinned, foreland fold-thrust belt crop out west of the Hudson River in the central Hudson Valley of New York State (Figure 1a, b). This Hudson Valley fold-thrust belt (HVB), which involves Middle Ordovician through lower Middle Devonian strata, is generally less than 4 km wide. fault-related folds, detachment faults and duplexes) of the belt are small enough to be seen in their entirety within individual outcrops.

The Zagros fold and thrust belt (Zagros FTB) is an approximately 1,800-kilometre (1,100 mi) long zone of deformed crustal rocks, formed in the foreland of the collision between the Arabian Plate and the Eurasian Plate. It is host to one of the world's largest petroleum provinces, containing about 49% of the established hydrocarbon reserves in fold and thrust belts and about 7% of all reserves globally.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series. The Appalachian Orogenic Belt, which extends along the eastern coast of North America from Newfoundland to Alabama is a structural geologist's delight. Geologists divide the mountain belt into several geological provinces each having their own unique set of structures and structural problems. Major provinces include the Appalachian Plateau, the Valley and Ridge, the Blue Ridge, and the Piedmont.

Structures of Fold and Thrust Belts is dedicated to the memory of Da-. vid V. Wiltschko (1949e2012) and the impact he had on the field of. structural geology through his own work and that of the colleagues. Interaction of the Rocky Mountain foreland and the Cordilleran thrust belt has taken place in the Snider Basin area, west of Big Piney, Wyoming. Here, the central segment (La Barge Platform) of the Moxa Arch, a Late Cretaceous, basement-cored uplift, plunges northwestward beneath, and disrupts the continuity of, the Darby, Hogsback, and Prospect thrusts.

Fold-and-thrust belts (FTBs) typically show along-strike variations in geometry in the form of salients and recesses

Fold-and-thrust belts (FTBs) typically show along-strike variations in geometry in the form of salients and recesses. Assuming that critical taper theory broadly defines the evolution of FTBs, it is possible to infer the behaviour of the orogenic wedge in different segments of an FTB by using a symptomatic approach. The differences in structural geometry and tectonic evolution between adjoining segments of the FTB result from broad variations in original taper, lithotectonic stratigraphy and the geometry of shelf-miogeocline transition zones in the Cordilleran sedimentary basin.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 166.The Appalachian Orogenic Belt, which extends along the eastern coast of North America from Newfoundland to Alabama is a structural geologist's delight. Geologists divide the mountain belt into several geological provinces each having their own unique set of structures and structural problems. Major provinces include the Appalachian Plateau, the Valley and Ridge, the Blue Ridge, and the Piedmont. The focus of this field trip is the Plateau and the Valley and Ridge where sedimentary rocks show the least indication of metamorphism. During mapping of Paleozoic deformation in these two provinces, the 19th century geologists, H.D. and W.B. Rogers, first realized that there was structural regularity along strike to both asymmetric folds and thrust faults. Although the Rogers brothers' initial observations are still valid, detailed mapping during the subsequent 145 years has shown that several subprovinces of the Appalachian foreland have their own characteristic structures. The purpose of field trip T166 is to examine variation in style of foreland deformation along a strike-parallel traverse of 1200 km from eastern New York to eastern Tennessee. The Appalachians are particularly convenient for such a study of structural style because this mountain belt is exhumed, exposing deep structures which are only detected seismically or in well data in younger belts.
