Version of Record online: 28 AUG 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ggge.20184

Key Points

  • The detachment fault is defined by a 450 m zone of mylonitic deformation
  • The fault deformed viscously and rooted at depths >7 km and temperatures >700oC
  • Variation among oceanic faults is due to water content and/or thermal structure
