A contact line on a geologic map is noted by a solid or dotted horizontal line with breaks sectioned off by a small vertical line below it. A fault line is noted as a horizontal dotted line with wide dashes.
depositional contacts occur between rocks that formed when sediments were deposited on other sediments.fault contacts are usually shown as thick black lines on geologic maps
Geologic maps show the distribution of various igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rock. The contact lines seperate and mark the boundary between two adjacent geologic formations.
Geologic maps are used to locate geological features such as layers of rock and fault lines. Topographic maps are used to see elevations.
In this sense, fault is a geologic term that does not refer to blame. It is an area where two distinct rock bodies move independently from each other.
10 fault lines
yes there are fault lines in haiti
fault or fault lines are (things) that form from earthquakes that cause building to fall and the ground to shake.
No, fault lines cause earthquakes
There are suspected geological fault lines in Colorado, but it is my understanding that none of them are major fault lines. See the Related Link below for a map of Colorado earthquakes and suspected fault lines.
No. Tornadoes have absolutely nothing to do with fault lines.
Most earthquakes do occur on fault lines.
Yes. England has minor fault lines but none that are major.
There are major and minor fault lines all over the United States. The two biggest fault lines that run through North Carolina are the Hayesville-Fries fault line and the Brevard Fault.
wheres all the canadian fault lines
The Alipne Fault in N.Z
Earthquake fault lines are a lines that mark all the known earthquakes in an area or region. Maps of these fault lines can be found on websites such as Google Image, Bing Image and Flickr.
The best site to find maps of fault lines is the USGS site. See the related link below for a USGS map of Oklahoma's fault lines.
Fault-block mountains form because of fault-lines. One side of a fault pushes over the other, causing blocks of rock to rise from the surface.
There are thousands of fault lines all over the world. A fault line is a surface trait of a fault. These are described as an intersection line found between the fault plain and the earth's surface.
No there is not any fault line in Arizona.
St. Andres fault line
No. Tornadoes are a weather phenomenon and have absolutely nothing to do with fault lines.
No South Dakota does not have any fault lines!!! I beg to differ. I live in SD and I know for a fact that we have fault lines that do produce small earthquakes from time to time.
