Objective 10/18/2012

Describe the three major types of folds and faults by modeling them.

Intro

Does rock bend or break or both?

folds
Folds
  • Folding – the bending of rock layers due to stress
folds1
Folds:

Take the layered clay in both hands, and slowly bend upwards (do not break the clay!) until a fold appears. Draw what you see:

folds2
Folds:

Take the layered clay in both hands, and slowly bend upwards (do not break the clay!) until a fold appears. Draw what you see:

folds3
Folds:
  • Anticline – upward arching folds
folds4
Folds:

Take the layered clay in both hands, and slowly bend downwards (do not break the clay!) until a fold appears. Draw what you see:

folds5
Folds:

Take the layered clay in both hands, and slowly bend downwards (do not break the clay!) until a fold appears. Draw what you see:

folds6
Folds:
  • Synclines – down-ward folds
folds7
Folds:

Take the layered clay in both hands. While keeping both hands horizontal, move one hand upwards slowly, until a new fold appears. Be careful not to break the clay! Draw what you see:

folds8
Folds:

Take the layered clay in both hands. While keeping both hands horizontal, move one hand upwards slowly, until a new fold appears. Be careful not to break the clay! Draw what you see:

folds9
Folds:
  • Monocline – rock layers are folded so that both ends of the fold are horizontal
faults
Faults
  • Fault – a break in a body of rock along which one block slides relative to another
faults1
Faults

With each piece of clay in your hands, model a normal fault by moving your right hand downwards and your left hand upwards. Draw what you see:

faults2
Faults

With each piece of clay in your hands, model a normal fault by moving your right hand downwards and your left hand upwards. Draw what you see:

faults3
Faults
  • Normal Fault – causes the hanging wall to move down relative to the footwall
faults4
Faults

With each piece of clay in your hands, model a reverse fault by moving your right hand upwards and your left hand downwards. Draw what you see:

faults5
Faults

With each piece of clay in your hands, model a reverse fault by moving your right hand upwards and your left hand downwards. Draw what you see:

faults6
Faults
  • Reverse Fault – causes hanging wall to move up relative to the footwall
faults7
Faults

Normal Fault

Reverse Fault

  • When rocks are pulled apart
  • One slab of rock slides DOWNWARD
  • When rocks are pushed together
  • One slab of rock slides UPWARD
faults8
Faults

With each piece of clay set on the table in front of you, model a strike-slip fault by pushing one piece of clay forward while pulling the other piece towards you. Draw what you see.

faults9
Faults

With each piece of clay set on the table in front of you, model a strike-slip fault by pushing one piece of clay forward while pulling the other piece towards you. Draw what you see.

faults10
Faults
  • Strike-slip Fault – opposing forces cause rock to break and move horizontally (like at a transform boundary)
folds and faults
Folds and Faults
  • Folding = bending
  • Fault = breaking
summary
Summary
  • When stress is put on rocks, they can either bend (fold) or break (fault). Syncline, Anticline and Monocline are three types of folds. Normal, Reverse and Strike-Slip are three types of faults. Each play a role in creating the different types of landforms around us.
