your paper on Stressing out the Rocks, here are some specific
instructions. Read this carefully – it will help you!
are writing about how folds and faults form. You will read about
several kinds of stress this week – you only have to talk about the ones that
form folds or faults (so you don’t have to talk about brittle or ductile
deformation, elastic deformation, etc.).
you write about faults, there are 3 kinds to write about: normal,
reverse (also includes thrust faults) and strike-slip faults. Be sure you
describe what forces (compressional, shearing or tensional) form those faults.
forget to talk about how folds form – there’s only one type of stress that
it! You do not need to talk about synclines/anticlines, elastic
deformation or anything else!
Rock structures (folds and faults) are created by the
stresses that deform the rocks. Write a one-page explanation of how the various
stresses in a rock result in the various folds and faults.
