This Review contains major "Faults"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.
- Faults are the source of many earthquakes that are caused by slippage vertically or laterally along the fault.
- Faults were created along the rift and igneous rocks formed from magma that was being pushed towards the surface.
- Faults are fractures along which there is relative sliding movement of the blocks in opposite directions on either side.
- Faults are classified according to how steeply they dip and the relative movement of the crustal blocks on either side of a fault.
- Faults are fractures or fracture zones in the Earth's crust along which one side moves with respect to the other.
- In reverse, or thrust, faults, relative subsidence may be measured in the hangingwall.
- However, the subsurface geometry of detachment faults in oceanic core complexes remains unclear.

- These major transform faults tend to persist throughout the lives of ocean basins, and are probably inherited from the original continental break-up.
- Tensional (stretching) stresses are apparent at the midocean ridges because the newly forming ocean crust is broken by a series of normal faults.
- Side-scanning radar images show that the midocean ridges are cut by thousands of long, linear, ridge-parallel fissures, fractures, and faults.
- A "double-dome mask" has curved windows in an attempt to cure these faults, but this causes a refraction problem of its own.
- However, she lost her first round match to Julia Schruff, 5–7, 7–6(3), 6–1, hitting 51 unforced errors and 28 double faults.
- Slip on steep faults in the Gorda plate generated two magnitude 6.6 aftershocks on 26 April.
- Richard Spooner, another Californian, and Cristallo finished second in the WEG Trials with 14 total faults.
- Comprised of serpentine and shale, this block straddles the Rogers Creek fault, one of the more active earthquake faults in Northern California.
- Furthermore, you will consider the faults of the one who explains the teachings to be good qualities.
- Time-Domain Reflectometer (TDR) - An electronic instrument used to characterize and locate faults in metallic cables (e.g., twisted pair, coax).
- You'll spend less time operating the TDR and more time repairing faults.
- Within the ocean, transform faults are usually simple, straight fault lines that form at a right angle to ocean ridge spreading centers.
- She had her brothers collect dossiers on faults of the Song clan while bribing the servants and eunuchs of Consorts Song to gather their own faults.
- The Hayward Fault is one of the larger faults created this way, along with the Calaveras Fault and the San Gregorio Fault.
- In some instances, the movement is distributed over a fault zone composed of many individual faults that occupy a belt hundreds of metres wide.
- These previous faults are all categorized as dip-slip faults because the movement of the fault blocks is up or down along the fault plane.
- The motion is nearly, but nowhere exactly, parallel to the San Andreas fault and related faults.
- Fragments of Sierran rocks that have moved northward along the San Andreas and related faults underlie other parts of the Coast Ranges.
- Oblique-slip faults A fault which has a component of dip-slip and a component of strike-slip is termed an 'oblique-slip fault'.
- Faults form when the stress applied to rock does exceed its internal strength.
- It is like a master fault in an intricate network of smaller faults that branch from the San Andreas and join it.
- A special class of strike-slip faults is the transform faults which are a plate tectonics feature related to spreading centers such as mid-ocean ridges.
- Transform plate boundaries are strike-slip faults that separate tectonic plates which are moving parallel to each other but in opposite directions.
- One example is in the Caribbean where, besides a subduction zone, there are quakes that occur along strike-slip, San Andreas-type, faults.
- A special class of strike-slip faults is the transform fault, where such faults form a plate boundary.
- Serious faults are a narrow head, weak muzzle, the presence of a topknot, and a general appearance that is sour and crouching.
- Along these faults the Pacific plate (including Los Angeles and Santa Cruz) is moving northwest relative to the North American plate.
- Many smaller faults branch from and join the San Andreas fault zone.
- Geologists and pedologists use soil profile features to establish the duration of surface stability in the context of geologic faults or slope stability.
- This fault zone contains many large and small faults running parallel and at odd angles to one another.
- Reverse faults occur in areas where the crust is being shortened such as at a convergent boundary.
- Although significant shortening is mid-Cretaceous in age, additional shortening, expressed as reverse faults and major folds, is early Tertiary.
- Reverse faults are associated with compressional forces- 2 plates or fault blocks pushing towards each other.
- Transform boundaries occur where plates slide or, perhaps more accurately, grind past each other along transform faults.
- These are also known as transform boundaries or more commonly as faults.
- Some transform boundaries are also described as strike slip faults.
- Plates also slide past each other, creating the faults that produce earthquakes.
- By definition, intraplate earthquakes do not occur near plate boundaries, but along faults in the normally stable interior of plates.
- The second type of fault movement, termed creep, is now taking place on portions of several faults in California.
- Fault tolerance requirements include recovery from software faults, hardware faults, data center faults, and network layer faults.
- The ability of a system or component to continue normal operation despite the presence of hardware or software faults.
- Mid-ocean ridges are often offset by fracture zones or transform faults.
- However, not all faults are seismically active and not all active faults produce large magnitude earthquakes.
- Pictured above is San Andreas Fault in California, one of the longest and most active faults.
- Many smaller faults, such as the Hayward fault in the north and the San Jacinto fault in the south, branch from the San Andreas fault.
- These two plates slip by each other with resultant earthquakes on the San Andreas Fault and subsidiary faults.
- The land bounced upwards frequently because of movement along the San Andreas, Rose Canyon, and other faults, raising old beaches high above sea level.
- The San Andreas and Hayward Faults are responsible for much earthquake activity, even though neither passes through the city itself.
- The San Andreas is one of the few transform faults exposed on land.
- Large faults within the Earth's crust are the result of shear motion and active fault zones are the causal locations of most earthquakes.
- As the crust is pulled apart, large faults are being created throughout the Great Basin and Range.
- Mclain Ward aboard Rio was 3rd with 8 faults.
- McLain Ward and Sapphire made it to the final jump-off for the bronze medal, but four faults at the final jump put them out of medal contention.
- Richard Spooner of California piloted Cristallo in the jump-off and had a good start, but a miscommunication at fence 6 caused a refusal for four faults.
- They circled quickly and finished with four faults in 49.400 seconds for fifth place.
- The stress of plate convergence compresses the crust there, causing it to thicken through a combination of folds and thrust faults.
- They were followed by thrust faults which movement resulted in plastic deformations of folds of the second generation [ Duk, 1995].
- Fault-bend folds are formed by movement of the hangingwall over a non-planar fault surface and are found associated with both extensional and thrust faults.
- Early on, Sagittarius and Capricorn may see nothing in each other but their faults.
- As we have seen, there are many areas to explore to reduce the occurrence of software faults during the development lifecycle.
- As the crust stretches, faults develop to accommodate the extension.
