Homework Help: Structural Geology: Fault Correlation

  1. Feb 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    We are given six cross sections each spaced 2km apart and from these we are supposed measure the slip of the fault, and map the hanging-wall and footwall cutoffs to another worksheet that is the map view of the cross sections. Once we have mapped all of the cutoffs and measured the slip of each fault we are supposed to connect the faults according to the amount of slip the fault has.

    Here is a link to a file sharing website containing the cross sections and the total problem statement.

    http://www.mediafire.com/myfiles.php" [Broken]

    The file "Lab5_2010" is the whole problem statement.
    The file "Lab5_crossSections" has all of my slip measurements on each of the cross sections
    The file "Lab5-My_attempt" is my attempt on connecting the faults so far.

    I am not sure if I am connecting the faults correctly. Can someone please check that for me?
    Also, how could I answer question 4 on the file "Lab5_2010"?

    Thanks in advance,
