Fault-induced mechanical anisotropy and its effects on fracture patterns in crystalline rocks

We used drone-acquired orthophotographs to map the 2D-networks of fractures transecting the Mesoproterozoic Rapakivi granites in southern Finland. The work aims at understanding i) how discrete faults and the kinematically linked syn-fault extension fractures originate in crystalline rocks, and ii)...
