Low-Angle Faulting in the Basement of Complex Impact Craters: Numerical Modelling and Field Observations in the Rochechouart Structure, France
Low-angle normal faults generate during crater modification in acoustically-fluidized rocks. Faulting is a result of an impact-induced rheological stratification of the crater floor and a passive rotation due to the uplift of the central peak.
