This site, which accompanies an introductory structural geology class at the University of Leeds, UK, contains information on faults. Topics include normal faults, thrust faults, strike-slip faults, faults and stress, and soft-linked fault systems. The site features explanations of the three basic types of faults with informative diagrams and a photo gallery. Full description.

This site features a series of four Macromedia Flash animations. These simulations illustrate the formation of basic geologic structures, including normal faults, thrust faults, strike-slip faults and various styles of folds. The animations were designed to complement the chapter on geologic structures in "Physical Geology" by Plummer, McGeary and Carlson. Full description.

This resource is a 2002 article in the on-line journal "Virtual Explorer." The site features text and numerous animations of analogue modeling experiments of fold and thrust belts. Topics include the effects of a thin viscous layer on structural evolution, brittle-viscous and brittle rheological domains, transfer zones, and lateral and oblique ramps. These animations provide a students and teachers ... Full description.
