New results of the deformation mechanisms in deformation bands in a porous carbonate grainstone

The AAPG bulletin published in its August issue, a paper by Alexander Rath, Ulrike Exner, Cornelius Tschegg, Bernhard Grasemann, Richard Laner and Erich Draganits about microstructural investigations and petrophysical properties of deformation bands in a carbonate grainstone.

Cathodoluminescence microscopy, electron probe microanalysis, minipermeamter measurements and microcomputed tomography data reveal a multistage evolution of the deformation bands and a strong reduction of porosity and permeability.
