The monocline is a persistent linear future with increasing expression in the landscape towards the south. It is a clear example of the geomorphological feature determined by a tectonic structure.

    2021-5-7 · Trending south-southeast from the easternmost of the Anakie volcanoes is an east-facing escarpment that is the surface expression of the Lovely Banks Monocline. The monocline is an important tectonic structure delineating the western margin of the Port Phillip Sunkland, and east of this line there is a marked reduction in the elevation of the lava plains south of the You Yangs.

    When reconstructed, the monocline has a steep forward-facing escarpment and a gentle backslope, and bears a strong morphologically similarity to lobate scarps on Mercury, Mars, and the Moon. The attitudes of the deformed model rock volume at specific stratigraphic levels match our field measurements of dip angle for corresponding stratigraphic units in the monocline, verifying our model solutions.

    This escarpment was not formed by a fault, but rather by the uniform erosion back from a monocline that formed over a fault. In a monocline, layers bend in one direction between layers of rock, kind of like a ramp. (see the picture to the right source:Dr. Judson L. Ahern). The fault created the monocline approximately 15 to 20 million years ago.

This observation confirms the profound differences between these two orogens; the Apennines, in spite of their younger, mainly Neogene age, and their lower topography, show the steepest values and the highest subsidence rates in the foredeep.
