The sedimentary bedrock strata have a regular southward inclination (7-15', azimuth 179[degrees]) and Palaeozoic layers form a gently dipping homocline.
The Piusa-Tabina area is located within the SE marginal zone of the gentle slope of the Fennoscandian Shield where the sedimentary cover forms a uniform Estonian Homocline (Puura & Vaher 1997).
Geomorphologically speaking, Wadi Tanezzuft flows in a consequent mode along a geological homocline constituted by the Tassili sandstone (lower Silurian) to the west, the Acacus sandstone (upper Silurian and lower Devonian) to the east, and the upper Silurian Marls of Tanezzuft in the centre (Desio 1937; Goudarzi 1970).
The Buttonwillow gas field is located near the depocenter of the San Joaquin Basin, a northwesterly-trending asymmetrical synclinorium which rises steeply to the west toward the Coast Range, but more gently to the east, forming a homocline.
These are generally interpreted as remnants of the cratonic crust that was rifted during Mesoproterozoic extension, the eastern limit of which may be reflected in a prominent series of west-facing crustal-scale homoclines beneath the Foreland Belt.
