Geosphere, April 2012, v. 8, p. 491-506, doi:10.1130/GES00758.1, Model 2 - Our second model requires an immaterial tear point fixed in an external reference frame. The absolute velocity vector of any material point in the slab in this case would be directed down-dip, i.e., parallel to the top and bottom of the slab. See text for details. See also Figure 18.
