|The Monte Rosa massif lies at a deep structural level within the Internal
Alps. Composed largely of old crystalline basement, it is rimmed by Mesozoic cover
sediments (now metamorphosed) which are in turn overlain tectonically by oceanic units.
The cover sediments are tightly folded and sheared, presumably as the overlying oceanic
rocks were emplaced. These deformation structures may be examined to deduce the
emplacement kinematics. Key here is to investigate the structural relationships between
the linear and planar fabrics and folds. Plot data onto a stereogram.
