Transected Cleavage

Photo
Transected cleavage within folded metasedimentary rocks, Wales. The traces of the axial planes are shown in red. Selected cleavage traces are shown in blue. Even in the axial regions of the folds, the cleavage is oblique to the axial plane. Thus, the cleavage is not directly related to the same deformation event that produced the folding.
