Folded and Boudinaged Anhydrite Layer
by David Tanner, Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics (LIAG), Hannover, Germany
A layer of anhydrite in a background of rock salt (z3AM). The anhydrite layer (z3AMah), being stiffer, has been boudinaged, the necks of the boudins are filled with secondary halite. The bed was then folded, the necks acting as points where the fold axis formed. Taken in the Morsleben salt mine and depository.
