What are the characteristics and movements of normal faults and reverse faults?



  1. 0 Votes

    In a normal fault, the two fault blocks are moving away from each other in the direction of gravity (one block is falling away from the other).  This forms a cliff-like feature known as a fault scrap.  In a reverse fault the opposite happens.  The blocks are moving towards each other and thus scrape against each other with material from one fault overlaying material from another fault.
