- geologic units that have adjusted to a severe stress(directed pressure) - when a body of rock is subjected to severe stress, then it may eventually strain(undergo formation, such as a change in shape).
a drawing of a vertical slice through Earth, with the matrial in front of it removed: a cutaway view. - shows the arrangement of formations and thier contacts. - if it is good, also shows the topography of the land surgace, like a topographic profile -
- the COMPASS BEARING (direction) of a line formed by the intersection of a horizontal plane(such as the surface of a lake) and an inclined layer(bed, stratum) of rock, fault, fracture, or other surface
- caused by compression(rock shortening) - as compressional stress pushes the rocks together, one block of rock gets pushed atop another. - when the hanging wall block has moved upward in relation to the footwall block. - generally place older strata on top of younger strata.
