In this week’s classic #openaccess paper, Alper Gürbüz looks at the geometric characteristics of pull-apart basins. Pull-apart basins are depressions bounded on their sides by two or more strike-slip faults and on their ends by diagonal transfer faults. The angles and aspect ratios of these basins are well known, but Gürbüz’s research suggests that there is also a relationship between the...

In this week’s classic #openaccess paper, Bridges et al. look at sand motion on Mars. Their research demonstrates that many sand ripples and dunes across Mars exhibit movement of a few meters per year, demonstrating that Martian winds are sufficient to mobilize sand and that sand migrates under current conditions in diverse areas of the planet.
