Oregon Cascades Play Fairway Analysis: Faults and Heat Flow Maps Oregon_faults_Trimble.zip

This submission includes a fault map of the Oregon Cascades and backarc, a probability map of heat flow, and a fault density probability layer. More extensive metadata can be found within each zip file.

For information about "Oregon Faults," contact John David Trimble, Oregon State University. trimbljo@onid.oregonstate.edu Faults are characterized as: (1) Highest Confidence: Clear offset of previously mapped geologic units. Previously mapped on published sources (labeled in attribute table). Clear topographic expression of fault scarp. Admissible with regional structure trends. (2) No clear offset of previously mapped geologic units (many units are very broadly defined and internally complex) Probable intra-unit offset. Previously mapped on published sources (labeled in attribute table). Clear topographic expression of fault scarp. Admissible with regional structure trends. (3) Intermediate Confidence/New Fault: These are interpretations of faults never mapped before. No offset of previously mapped geologic units. Probable intra-unit offset. Not previously mapped on published maps. Clear topographic expression of fault scarp. Admissible with regional structure trends. Interpreter is very confident that this is a fault revealed by LiDAR that has not been previously recognized. (4) No offset of previously mapped geologic units. Not previously mapped on published sources. Moderate topographic expression of scarp. Admissible with regional structure trends. Interpreter is moderately confident that this is a fault revealed by LiDAR that has not been previously recognized. (5) Lowest Confidence: No offset of previously mapped geologic units. Not previously mapped on published sources. Weak topographic expression of scarp. Interpreter has low confidence that this is a fault revealed by LiDAR that has not been previously recognized. These are sublinear trends that have potential to be faults, but are unclear. These features are mapped so that they are not ignored, and so that future reviewers do not suspect them to be features overlooked during interpretation.
