"Anticlinal" in context

An anticline is a geological formation in which the layers of sedimentary rock are arched upwards, with the most convex points of the fold pointing upwards, as opposed to a syncline, in which the layers of sedimentary rock are bowed downwards. Anticlines are most often the result of compression due to tectonic forces, and they can occur in any of the three types of rocks: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary. In sedimentary rocks, anticlines are typically formed when layers of rock are uplifted and then subjected to forces of subsidence and erosion, forming lines of rock that fold upward.
