Fracture Pattern of the Northern Portion of the Florida Peninsula, 1951
Puzzle Directions: Click on a puzzle piece and drag it where you want it. When you connect two pieces correctly, they will join together. This is an extra hard double-sided puzzle. The same map is printed on both sides the pieces. Some of the pieces are turned over to the wrong side. To flip a piece over, hold down the "T" key and click on the puzzle piece. Mix up the pieces again. View finished map in pop-up window.
Title: Fracture Pattern of the Northern Portion of the Florida Peninsula Projection: Unknown Source Bounding Coordinates: W: E: N: S:
Description: This map from the Florida Geological Survey Bulletin number 33, shows fracture patterns representing structural movements in the Florida peninsula. As noted in the text, the poorly consolidated sediments composing Tertiary rocks of Florida favor adjustments to strain by step fracturing rather than by bending. The predominant northwest to southeast fracture pattern in Citrus and Levy counties appear to be a major system associated with the Ocala uplift. The radiating fracture pattern in Union County resembles the fracturing present over salt domes of the Gulf Coast. Source: Robert O.
