This is a short lesson about scarp formation. The answer is provided as an animated GIF. This example points out a general rule of fault-related geology: the apparent offset of a feature (in this case, level ground...
In this activity, the learner will watch three animations based on actual data from fault ruptures from the two largest Southern California earthquakes in the 1990s: Landers (1992) and Northridge (1994). In Section 3,...
When plate tectonics causes part of the Earth's crust to compress, as in a zone of collision, or to extend, as in a zone of rifting, faults must form to help accomplish this task. While the deeper layers of rock, due to...
This activity has two parts: the first part will demonstrate the weaknesses of simple fault models (like block diagrams) in depicting the process of fault rupture accurately; and the second part is centered around a...
The orientation and sense of slip of faults in an area is largely dependent upon the tectonic forces present in that area. In this exercise learners are shown several idealized fault-block models and asked to interpret...
