Faults in Cross Section

Cross section view of small normal faults. The faults clearly offset the top bedding surface. Many of the faults die out downward. A few of the faults are "blind" in the sense that they do not extend to the top surface or the bottom surface of the slab. The rock was collected in the Solite Quarry, Danville rift basin, and was sawed open. Photo credit: Roy Schlische.
