    Geochemical studies of fault zone rocks have shown fault-related rocks to be depleted in Si, Al, K, Na, and Ca relative to immobile Ti (Goddard and Evans, ), or to be depleted in SiO 2, Na 2 O, and K 2 O but enriched in TiO 2, CaO, P 2 O 5, and H 2 O relative to protoliths (Evans and Chester, ).
