Abstract

After introducing the various stress regimes in the lithosphere, the book shows how their extent in the upper crust is demarcated by direct measurements of four types: hydraulic fracture, borehole-logging, strain-relaxation, and rigid-inclusion measurements. The relationship between lithospheric stress and the properties of rocks is then presented in terms of micro-crack related phenomena and residual stress. Lithospheric stress is also inferred from the analsyis of earthquakes. Finally, lithospheric stress is placed in the context of large-scale stress fields and plate tectonics. -Publisher
