Tectonic Analysis and Display the Structure of the Flysch in South Messinia
Summary:
This study deals with the deformation of the flysch of the Gavrovo Unit in the
southern Messinia. The flysch is dated in Eocene. The study was based on
exposures on road cuts along the Messini—Foinikounda road. In all, nine pairs
of road cuts were examined aligned roughly Ε—W, normal to the structural grain
of the flysch.In order to display the structure, photos were taken, which
comprised a panorama for each road cut. Photo stitching, merging and panorama
creation was made by “Kolor Autopano Giga” and “Microsoft ICE”. Through photos,
with the help of “Corel Draw Graphics”, projection of the structure with the
most distinct horizons and faults. Then, using the geological compass, all
recorded measurements of tectonic elements were taken and they are located in
the annex of this study. Through the computer software “Stereo 32” and
“Tectonics FP” the given results helped in conducting right conclusions.In
conclusion, the deformation of the study area is characterized by
back-thrusting, with east-verging asymmetrical sub-horizontal faults within the
flysh of the Gavrovo Unit.
