Laminites (NE Brazil) are well laminated carbonates that provide insight into the geomechanical behaviour of layered systems, especially when comparing deformation characteristics observed in the laboratory with outcrop / field scale deformations.
This is useful in order to
a) validate where laboratory experiments can reproduce field scale deformation types
b) understand which feature characteristics can or cannot be scaled
