Chapter 7 Section 4
Deforming the earth’s crust
The process by which the shape of a rock changes because of stress.
Bending of rock layers due to stress
Anticline- upward arching folds
Syncline- downward trough like folds
Monocline- both ends are horizontal but the middle is bent
2 most common types
A break in a body of rock along which one block slides relative to another
