Defining folds on three-dimensional surfaces

Lisle, Richard John and Toimil, Noel C. 2007. Defining folds on three-dimensional surfaces. Geology 35 (6) , pp. 519-522. 10.1130/G23207A.1

We present a new method for the structural analysis of folded surfaces. The method requires a generalized definition of a fold as a patch consisting of contiguous points with Gaussian curvature and mean curvature of consistent sign. Four classes of folds result from this definition: antiforms and synforms each of synclastic and anticlastic forms. This new analysis is illustrated with reference to several examples.
