[Excellent exposures of salt diapirs and flanking strata in La Popa basin, northeastern Mexico, contain world-class examples of salt-sediment interaction that provided the basis for the concept of halokinetic sequences. The basin also contains one of the first secondary salt welds described in...
[The principal motivation for understanding salt diapirism and tectonics (e.g., Hudec and Jackson, 2007) derives historically from the abundance of hydrocarbon resources in salt basins of the world. Moreover, bodies of evaporite such as diapirs, salt walls, and salt canopies form important...
[The excursion for each day is shown in Fig. 3.1. Excursion 1 consists of a visit to El Papalote diapir in La Popa basin and return via Potrero Chico near Hidalgo to compare diapiric and detachment structures. Excursion 2 is a tour of La Popa weld to observe the structural and stratigraphic...
[The excursion route is shown in Fig. 3.1. The itinerary provides a detailed look at La Popa weld to observe the structural and stratigraphic variability of that feature. La Popa salt weld was the first weld described in detail from outcrop exposures (Giles and Lawton 1999).]
