This site features a series of four Macromedia Flash animations. These simulations illustrate the formation of basic geologic structures, including normal faults, thrust faults, strike-slip faults and various styles of folds. The animations were designed to complement the chapter on geologic structures in "Physical Geology" by Plummer, McGeary and Carlson.
Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
