Utah, Hanksville: folded playa deposits

Outcrop Jurassic Summerville Fm, along S276, Mile 19 south of Hanksville, Utah. Playa deposits with small-scale compressional overthrust faulting and folding in response to gravitational sliding in between diapiric volcanic intrusions. Photo Evert van der Graaff.

Notes: the strain overlay below shows that there is little deformation within the zone of interest but there is deformation outside the zone of interest (1).
