Domino-Style Normal Faults

Photo
Domino-faulted interval (red arrow) within the Blomidon Formation, Fundy rift basin, Red Head, Nova Scotia. The faults dip gently to the right, while the beds dip moderately to steeply to the left. Units above the blue arrow are undeformed, so faulting predates the deposition of these units. Photo credit: Roy W. Schlische.
