The RSA 3, views. Choose your language. This is called shear stress. When an earthquake occurs on one of these faults, the rock on one side of the fault slips with respect to the other, just as they observed when experimenting with their fault models.

plate movement and subduction, volcanic activity, and intrusive igneous activity. Folds are most visible in rocks that contain layering. A fault can be defined as the displacement of once connected blocks of rock along a fault plane.
 In the Almanzora Corridor, the fold and fault interaction configures the The relation between the base of the marine deposits and the top of the red. These faults show evidence of activity in different periods, taking into.

They learn about different kinds of faults and their relationship to create cardboard models of the three different types of faults—transcurrent. Folds and Faults. Purpose. To learn why and how rock layers are folded and faulted and to learn how to represent the structures in maps and cross sections.
Mention to the students that thrust faults are reverse faults that develop at a very shallow angle.
Activity Folds and Faults
This piece of cardboard represents a cross-section of the Earth analogous to cutting a cake and observing the internal layers. No topic rooms are there. Pressure must not exceed the internal strength of the rock. There are several different kinds of faults.
