Abstract

MARSHALL'S statement that I considered “that kink-bands are symmetrically distributed about a planar anisotropy caused by cleavage” is scarcely a fair synopsis of the sentences: “In any one area the kink-bands may all be roughly parallel and all may have the same sense of displacement. However, conjugate sets, composed of kink-bands in two different orientations with complementary displacements, are not uncommon”1. Clearly I fully realized that kink-band systems are not all symmetrical about the foliation and that the symmetrically arranged conjugate set is a special case.
