It is a instruction manual of useful concepts for making the absolute best interpretation of geological buildings on the map scale and for extracting the utmost quantity of knowledge from floor and subsurface maps. The 3D constitution is outlined by way of internally constant constitution contour maps and pass sections of all horizons and faults. The e-book is directed towards the pro consumer who's enthusiastic about either the accuracy of an interpretation and the rate with which it may be got from incomplete info. Quantitative tools are emphasised all through, and various analytical suggestions are provided that may be simply carried out with a pocket calculator or a spreadsheet. Interpretation concepts are outlined for GIS or CAD clients, but are basic adequate to be performed through hand. The consumer of this e-book can be in a position to produce greater geological maps and move sections, pass judgement on the standard of current maps, and find and attach mapping blunders.

32). For a normal fault, the hangingwall is displaced down with respect to the footwall, and for a reverse fault the hangingwall is displaced up with respect to the footwall. 6 · Faults Fig. 32. Vertical cross section showing the relative fault displacement terminology with horizontal as the reference plane Fig. 33. Vertical cross section showing the relative fault displacement terminology with bedding as the reference plane separation fault. , originally horizontal bedding), a normal-separation fault extends a line parallel to bedding and a reverse-separation fault shortens the line.

39c). A generic term for the fold is a ramp anticline. The fold above a normal fault is commonly called a rollover anticline if the hangingwall beds near the fault dip toward the fault. , 30° for a reverse fault). A flat is approximately parallel to bedding, at an angle of say, Fig. 39. Relationships between folds and faults. a Constant slip on a planar fault does not cause folding. b Slip on either a plane or curved fault that dies out produces a fold in the region of the fault tip. c Slip on a curved fault causes folding in the hangingwall Fig.

27b). In highly deformed rocks, cleavage parallel to bedding might be the result of deformation caused by a large amount of layer-parallel slip or by isoclinal refolding of an earlier axial-plane cleavage. Extension fractures and veins may form due to the bending stresses in the outer arc of a fold (Fig. 28). Such features should become narrower and die out toward the neutral surface. The fracture plane is expected to be approximately parallel to the axis of the fold and the fracture-bedding line of intersection should be parallel to the fold axis.
