Astypalaea Linea (6594 words)
Displacement on Astypalaea Linea at Cyclades Macula and Thasus Linea, and near the southern end of the fault, was 42 km, 41.5 km, and 42.5 km, respectively.
Astypalaea Linea is probably not active because it appears that various flexii cut the fault.
The discovery of Astypalaea Linea extends the range of confirmed lateral motion to near the south pole, at the edge of the fracture zone identified by Schenk and McKinnon (1989), consistent with the proposal by Pappalardo and Sullivan (1996) that lateral motion is a global process.
Strike-slip faults on Europa (4269 words)
Astypalaea and its offset are visible in images taken by the Voyager spacecraft in 1979 (Fig.
For example, the spring-back would be limited by any inelasticity in the ice, or by any displacement of the adjacent plates that may have taken place as the shear stress was applied (analogous to the motion of one's body forward during the part of a step when the foot is on the ground).
Right-lateral motion would be predicted for Astypalaea because the shear stress curve moved upward during the tension phase in Fig.
