Stefan M. Schmalholz and Yuri Y. Podladchikov Tectonic overpressure in weak crustal-scale shear zones and implications for the exhumation of high-pressure rocks Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 29 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50417

Key Points

  • Viscous heating generates weak and stable crustal shear zones during shortening
  • High tectonic overpressure occurs in shear zone despite low differential stress
  • HP-UHP rocks can form in weak crustal thrust-type shear zones
