The techniques of inverse for tectonic stress field in Chao-Shan area using data of sliding faults

  • Qizhu Wang
  • Zuji Qiang


The neotectonic stress field in Chao-Shan area is analyzed with the fault striation analysis method. At least four types of stress states are detected, which are in close connection with their locations relative to the basin. Generally, from the subsidence centres to places far from them, horizontal tectonic stress varies from tensile to compressive.
