cuirasse, sur cuirasse, sous cuirasse. These are  are geological terms.
Des cavités sur- et sous-cuirasse sur un petit domaine de palier rocheux en cours d'érosion sont aussi observés dans la partie sud de la berme
-thanks :-)

According to an entry in Kudoz on Proz, it could mean crust.

Also, according to the Collins Robert French Dictionary, this word means armour (-plate or -plating), breast-plate. Applied to your context, perhaps you could say plate, as in a geological plate.

After more study, I did find "crust" to be the best English translation, and one that is widely used. Thanks again Carolyn :-)
