Structural Evolution of Djebel-Debadib Anticline: A Clue to the Regional Tectonic Style of the Tunisian Atlas
Djebel Debadib is a northeast trending anticline in the Tunisian Atlas, near El Kef, Tunisia. The core of the anticline consists of a deformed Triassic, gypsum-matrix breccia containing clasts of supratidal dolomite, terrigeneous clastic rocks, and ophites (metabasites). Locally, low-grade metasedimentary rocks, occurring as clasts in the evaporite, may represent fragments of basement rock plucked from salt subcrop during deep-seated flowage. The multiply deformed Triassic rocks are juxtaposed against Cretaceous or younger rocks, and Jurassic and Neocomian strata are not present in outcrop. These ...
