In the field of continuous deformation, so far we have only considered homogeneous structures. The present chapter is there-fore dedicated to an examination of the principal elementary structures of continuous heterogeneous deformation. We shall study structures that are only visible at the scale of a mineral grain such as pressure shadows or snowball inclusions, as well as structures visible at various scales such as shear zones or boudinage. Because of their importance in natural deformation and the voluminous knowledge acquired about them, folds are made the subject of a separate chapter although they are also included in the category of continuous heterogeneous deformation structures.
