Magnitude of deviatoric stress in the upper lithosphere



Magnitude of deviatoric stress in the upper lithosphere



Dizhi Lunping = Geological Review 37(4): 289-299



There are four major factors that influence the magnitude of deviatoric stress in the upper lithosphere, based on the data of three-dimensional finite element calculation, seismology, microstructure and in-situ stress measurements. These factors are: (1) mechanical properties of rock medium (the magnitude of deviatoric stress bigger in the hard rocks, and smaller in the soft rocks); (2) tectonic positions (the magnitude of deviatoric stress is bigger within the plate, and smaller at the plate boundary); (3) depth (deviatoric stress increases with the increase of depth); and (4) latitude (the magnitude of deviatoric stress is bigger in the mid-latitude areas, and smaller in the low-or high-latitude areas).
