Table 1 Displacement and shortening estimates from field-constrained horizons of the working basis cross-section. The shortening of bed-length was calculated using the top of the Portlandian sequence

From: Multiple detachments during thin-skinned deformation of the Swiss Central Jura: a kinematic model across the Chasseral

Distance Method Length (km)
Total displacement D EA 11.0
Displacement d EA 8.4
Displacement D–d EA 2.6
Bed offset along thrusts BL 1.7
Shortening from folded bed BL 2.6
Total bed shortening BL 4.3
