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.
