"Résumé

L'analyse de la fracturation dans les bassins permiens des Jebilet, des Réhamna (Maroc hercynien) et les terrains sous-jacents permet de proposer un modèle pour leur ouverture. Trois épisodes tectoniques sont distingués : un épisode transtensif NNE–SSW (Permien I), responsable de l'ouverture des bassins le long des accidents décrochants sénestres N070–110 associés à des failles normales N05–40 synsédimentaires ; un épisode transpressif ESE–WNW (Permien II), qui amorce la fermeture, les failles normales rejouant en inverses dextres, les accidents N070 en dextres ; enfin, un épisode compressif NNW–SSE (post-Permien–anté-Trias), qui accentue la fermeture ainsi que les déformations des bassins et met fin aux mouvements compressifs tardi-hercyniens. Pour citer cet article : A. Saidi et al., C. R. Geoscience 334 (2002) 221–226.
Abstract

The fracturing analysis in the Permian basins of Jebilet and Rehamna (Hercynian Morocco) and the underlying terranes allowed us to suggest a model for their opening. Three tectonic episodes are distinguished: a transtensional episode NNE–SSW-trending (Permian I), occurring during the opening along sinistral wrench faults N70–110-trending, associated with synsedimentary normal faults; a transpressive episode ESE–WNW-trending (Permian II), initiating the closure, the normal faults playing back reverse faults and the N70 trending faults dextral wrench faults; a compressional episode NNW–SSE (post-Permian, ante-Triassic), accentuating the closure and the deformation and putting an end to the Tardi-Hercynian compressive movements. To cite this article: A. Saidi et al., C. R. Geoscience 334 (2002) 221–226."
