To distinguish them from folds of tectonic origin, such structures are called synsedimentary formed during sedimentation. Slump folding: When slumps form in poorly consolidated sediments, they commonly undergo folding, particularly at their leading edges, during their emplacement.

The asymmetry of the slump folds can be used to determine paleoslope directions in sequences of sedimentary rocks. In the case of high-level intrusions, near the Earth's surface, this deformation is concentrated above the intrusion and often takes the form of folding, as with the upper surface of a laccolith. Top: low drag by ramp: layers are not altered in thickness; Bottom: high drag: lowest layers tend to crumple. When rock behaves as a fluid, as in the case of very weak rock such as rock salt, or any rock that is buried deeply enough, it typically shows flow folding also called passive folding, because little resistance is offered : the strata appear shifted undistorted, assuming any shape impressed upon them by surrounding more rigid rocks.

The strata simply serve as markers of the folding. Folding of rocks must balance the deformation of layers with the conservation of volume in a rock mass.

This occurs by several mechanisms. Flexural slip[ edit ] Flexural slip allows folding by creating layer-parallel slip between the layers of the folded strata, which, altogether, result in deformation.

A good analogy is bending a phone book, where volume preservation is accommodated by slip between the pages of the book. The fold formed by the compression of competent rock beds is called "flexure fold".

Buckling[ edit ] Typically, folding is thought to occur by simple buckling of a planar surface and its confining volume.

The volume change is accommodated by layer parallel shortening the volume, which grows in thickness.

Folding under this mechanism is typically of the similar fold style, as thinned limbs are shortened horizontally and thickened hinges do so vertically.

Mass displacement[ edit ] If the folding deformation cannot be accommodated by flexural slip or volume-change shortening buckling , the rocks are generally removed from the path of the stress.

Folds in shear zones can be inherited, formed due to the orientation of pre-shearing layering or formed due to instability within the shear flow. To distinguish them from folds of tectonic origin, such structures are called synsedimentary formed during sedimentation.
