Deforming the Earth’s Crust: Faulting

Deforming the Earth’s Crust: Faulting

Deforming the Earth’s Crust: Faulting. Pg. 121. What is a FAULT?. When rock layers BREAK when stress is applied. One block of rock slides relative to another. Narrow base block of angled crust. What is the hanging wall,. see page 114.

Unit 4: Earthquakes & Volcanoes

Unit 4: Earthquakes & Volcanoes. AIM: How does stress in the crust change Earth’s surface?. Forces in Earth’s Crust. The movement of Earth’s plates creates enormous forces that squeeze or pull the rock in the crust. Stress – a force that acts on a rock to change its shape or volume.

Fault Types

Fault Types

Fault Types. By Ashlyn Boswell. Thrust Fault. Reverse Fault. Normal Fault. Strike Slip Fault. Strike Slip Fault. The most famous strike slip fault in the United States is the San Andreas Fault in California. Earthquakes are most common along strike slip faults.

Types of Faults

Types of Faults

Types of Faults. Strike Slip Fault: Two layers of rock are shifted horizontally or parallel to the fault plane. . 1) "Hanging Wall "- The surface of block that is ontop of the plane of the fault. 2) "Footwall" - The surface or block that lies below the plane of the fault.

Earthquakes and Faults

Earthquakes and Faults

Earthquakes and Faults. 1. Faults. A fault is a break or fracture between two blocks of rocks in response to stress. Three types of stresses produce faults Tension Compression Shear One block has moved relative to the other block.
