Faults are one of the most impressive and beautiful structures arising from deformation of the earth's crust; we are not, of course, biased! Determining the slip-direction and the total displacement is often not an easy task. Slickensides are useful shear sense indicators, but generally cannot be...

Folds with inclined fold axis are called plunging folds. Determining the plunge and plunge direction can be a quite tricky task, if the exposure is 2-D. The models illustrate the difficulties that arise in the interpretation of the map pattern of plunging folds. You will find out that the map of a...
