Copy the Surface Chronology to an Empty Fault Block. fault blocks (graben or rift valley if the downdropped block is bounded on both sides by normal faults, as in this block model) produces normal faulting. Fault block model for my earthquake unit. Faults are subdivided according to the movement of the two blocks. To demon-strate the decomposition of a geodetically observed velocity field, we use the GeoNet data from Japan and a nationwide block model (Loveless and Meade, 2009). Fault Types Three main types of faults. A fault trace is also the line commonly plotted on geologic maps to represent a fault. The reservoir consists of marginal marine sandstone of Hugine Formation. In the plate tectonic model, large-scale compressional stress is found at. Decide how many copies of each model to make so that there is one handout per student. What does this mean? Death Valley in California is a smaller example. If you are working with a faulted model and have defined the Surface Chronology for one fault block, you can copy the Surface Chronology to the Making a Fault Block Model Page 1 of 2 GLY2010C – Fault Block Model Instructions GOAL: To color and construct a fault block model to demonstrate the offset that results from movement along: normal, reverse, and strike-slip faults. The relative motion of fault blocks on opposite sides of a strike-slip fault is. Alternatively, you can hand draw these fault blocks to demonstrate the offset in each type of fault. It also represents the extensional motion and resultant rift development associated with divergent plate boundaries (Table 1). The Fault Block Model was designed for the development of gas production from Sleipner Vest. Print out the three fault block model handouts – normal, reverse, and strike-slip. There are two main types of block mountains; uplifted blocks between two faults and tilted blocks mainly controlled by one fault. The model will be divided into separate fault blocks that can be worked with in a similar manner to the geological model as a whole. The strike-slip fault model has a central piece that is much more easily cut with a blade than with scissors. convergent plate boundaries. horizontal. You can create your own topography and show the outcrop pattern of … Visible Geology is an interactive online educational tool for visualizing 3D geologic block models. There are three or four primary fault types: Normal fault. This short interactive activity has learners to manipulate fault blocks to better understand different types of earthquake-generating faults in different tectonic settings--extensional, convergent, and strike-slip. Fault-block mountains often result from rifting, an indicator of extensional tectonics.These can be small or form extensive rift valley systems, such as the East African Rift zone.
