KINK-BANDS, CONJUGATE

If the comprssion applied to laminated anisotropic medium is at an angle generally less than 25 degrees, then the conjugate or box folds developed may have a striking asymmetry with one kinked zone better developed than the other. The two photographs here show at the top asymmetrical conjugate kink-bands from Rhoscolyn anticline in North Wales and the lower one similar structures from the Delhi orogenic belt north of Khimpura near Masuda.
