After reading about folds and faults, post an image of one fold and one fault and add a caption below each image that explains what can be seen in the image. To avoid plagiarism, cite the source of your images and make sure your summaries (captions) and images are not too similar to those of another student or author. DO NOT SAVE WORD DOCUMENTS! Upload images that show up, when the page is opened (JPEG images seem to work best)!


Sami Allam- one of the many faults of the Grand Canyon.This is a reverse fault because the hanging wall goes up.

Rashid Haddad=Anticlines contain series of rock layers.

Faults= They are fractures in the rocks and one of the fractures is lower or higher than the other causing different levels in the rock surface.

salv_faults.jpgSlip and Slide fault line this fault is created by earthquakes, the foothold is on the top and bottem is created by tension.
VolcanicFolds.jpg The volcanic fold is made by a volcano and is Anticline and a syncline is at the bottom of the fold.



The right-lateral strike-strip fault of the San Andreas Fault. It is a lateral displacement of the crust that causes earthquakes.

There are clearly seen dips among those faults and folds in that rock.

This picture shows that the rock anticlines which means that it curves upward.

external image Syncline.jpg
This image shows that the rock synclines which means it folds downward.

Shear Fold:
This shear fold developed by earth quakes.

San Andreas Fault
This image is a San Andreas Fault where crusts have been displaced causing earthquakes.

This is a picture that has downfolds or troughs called synclines. This fold also forms a strike-slip fault going north and south.

Oblique slit fault-it's a a combination of a dip slip fault and a strike slip fault; it require both dip slip and strike fualt to be strike significant and measurable.


Anticline Fold- it has its oldest layer of rocks in the middle of it; antiform would be any fold that is convex up.


Michelle Kloda-

A fold is a bent layer that was once horizontal but moved throughout time.
There are small folds on both sides of the picture.
Folds are formed when things occur by the borderline of faults.


A fault is a fracture in which one part of the rock moves in respect to the other.
The rocks that you see are fit with the rocks on the other side.
Faults form because they are under stres or because it is hot.

A fault in Brdarieux, France. The left side moves down while the right side moves up.
The warping of the rock layers on the right is likely due to drag folding.
