I'm having trouble determining the type of fault represented on this map.
What type of fault is represented on this map?
What is the fault orientation?
What does this mean?, Do I do this by working out strike/dip angle/dip direction of the line F–F'?. In the example I did in class, I was given the orientation every time and just drew the cross sections, so I don't know.
- determine components of fault movement, i.e., work out dip-slip, strike-slip, net-slip, heave and throw
I know the formulas for each or how to determine some, but where do I have to start on this map? From what I can see I can maybe work out the throw first?
Throw = displacement of horizontal feature = 100 m?
Heave - slide said to use trigonometry
I can't find any examples online for the maths of faults and so I think I need a lot of help with this part if someone could work step by step. Because when I look at this map, I don't know where to start and where things are going by calculating those things. Thanks
I did a rough cross section of the map, but I don't know the orientation of the fault so I just assumed it was in that direction.
