This is a general structural geology page where some pictures and definitions of fault blocks can be found.

View Resource The Distribution of Earthquakes: An Earthquake Deficit?

In this activity, students use online resources to investigate the occurrence of earthquakes in Southern California to decide if there has been a 'deficit', that is, not enough earthquakes in the area in historical time to release the amount of strain energy that plate tectonics is constantly supplying to the crust. In the first two parts, they must determine the appropriate year to begin their...

View Resource Fault Array Evolution and Transpression: Transtension along the Dead Sea Transform

In this exercise, students investigate structural evolution and fault zone linkage along a plate boundary; specifically, the Dead Sea Transform. They will use satellite imagery, seismicity data, field data, and structural measurements to assess the overall kinematics (changes in the position of objects with time), investigate fault segment length and style, contrast deformation in the northern...

View Resource Active Faulting in Idaho

This lesson introduces students to faulting from the Quaternary Period and the Holocene Epoch in the State of Idaho. They will examine a map showing the distribution of these faults and answer questions concerning groundwater circulation and earthquake potential, and determine which geologic province has the most neotectonically active faults (15,000 years or younger).

View Resource Modeling Elastic Rebound: The Earthquake Machine Lite

This activity is the first in a two part sequence designed to increase students' understandings about earthquakes. It will address the following questions: What is an earthquake?; What is the role of a model in science?; and How are scientific ideas constantly changing? The activity involves the construction of a model ('The Earthquake Machine') that allows students to explore stick-slip behavior...
