Abstract

A simple computer program is described for estimating palaeostress tensors from orientation data from a set of fault planes. The computation is based on a novel technique that allows the tensor to be estimated in situations where directions of slip on the faults cannot be determined, but where the senses of the dip-slip component of slip on the faults are known. The new technique greatly broadens the scope of palaeostress analysis, permitting the analysis of faults lacking slickenlines but exhibiting offsets of horizontal marker beds.
