ES1103  Examine animations of fault motion.

Arrows on the diagrams below show the direction in which force was applied to form each type of fault. The surface between the two pieces of moving rock is called the fault plane. The part of a fault above the fault plane is called the hanging wall. Rocks that are below the fault plane are called the footwall.
