The Kalabagh Hills Fault is also related to a salt plug that is migrating up section.
The development of these structures is largely due to the salt migration along the compressional structures, followed by salt plugs extruding to the surface and finally large-scale crustal collapse of the Kalabagh Hills occurred.
The methods use a linear salt gradient, instead of salt plug injections, in the strong cation-exchange first dimension, and reversed-phase in the second injection.
