Examine animations of fault motion
Developed for high school students, this Earth science resource provides animations of each of four different fault types: normal, reverse, thrust, and strike-slip faults. Each animation has its own set of movie control buttons, and arrows in each animation indicate the direction of force that causes that particular kind of fault. The introductory paragraph defines the terms fault plane, handing wall, and footwall--features that are labeled at the end of the appropriate animations. Copyright 200
