A type of fault, with movement of the Earth's crust, in which a lower stratigraphic layer is pushed up and over a younger one as a result of compression forces
A fault caused by compressional forces
a fault on which the hanging wall appears to have moved up-ward, relative to the footwall, at an angle of 45o or less It is caused by horizontal compression It is a reverse fault with a shallowly dipping fault plane
A reverse fault in which the fault plane is inclined at an angle equal to or less than 45°
Break in the earth's crust from squeezing or compression; the overlying block moves up the dip of the fault plane and the underlying block moves down
A geologic fault where the hanging wall is forced over the foot wall
Reverse faults that dip at low angles (less than 15 degrees) and have stratigraphic displacements commonly measured in kilometers
n a low-angle reverse fault, where the hanging wall (overhanging wall) moves upward relative to the footwall
A reverse fault marked by a dip of 45º or less
a geological fault in which the upper side appears to have been pushed upward by compression
when a reverse fault has an angle of 45º or less
A reverse fault with a low angle of inclination
blind thrust fault
A type of thrust fault, which does not appear on the surface, being completely hidden underneath ductile surface rock layers
