What Is an Earthquake?: How Tectonic Forces Affect Faults
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...
In this exercise, students investigate the evolution of Earth's surface over time, as governed by the balance between constructional (tectonic) processes and destructional (erosional) processes. Introductory materials...
Balanced Cross Sections and Retrodeformation
In this exercise, students investigate the use of balanced cross sections and retrodeformation to study faults that do not break the surface and their application to tectonics, folding, and earthquake hazards....
1906 Earthquake Shaking in the Classroom
This lesson uses interactive diagrams of ground shaking from the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake to teach students about the mechanics involved in the rupture of a fault and the propagation of seismic waves as an...
Every Place Has Its Faults
This site covers the four main types of faults (not including growth faults): the normal fault, reverse fault, transcurrent (strike-slip) fault, and thrust fault. Animations show the type of movement for each different...
