1. Describe the first structures to form and their orientation? • From the initial standpoint, we sheared one of our blocks laterally past the other block. By doing this, we created a strike-slip fault with a displacement of 5 mm. The angle of our orientated fold of the fault was 40 degrees south. As we slowly sheared a greater displacement

Describe the first structures to form and their orientation?From the initial standpoint, we sheared one of our blocks laterally past the other block. By doing this, we created a strike-slip fault with a displacement of 5 mm. The angle of our orientated fold of the fault was 40 degrees south. As we slowly sheared a greater displacement, an anticline pair began to develop along our fault line. The amplitude of this anticline was 1 cm and the wavelength was 2 mm. The shear slip that we created is considered to be a right-lateral or dextral fault. The anticline pair in which we created is considered to have piercing points because they were adjacent to each other. 2. During continued displacement, what happened to these structures?Throughout our lab as we increased the magnitude of our displacements we had a change in fault parameters. As we increased our slip the amplitude and wavelength pairs increased in relation to the displacement. Our fold axis had a increased angle as we increased our slip. It was apparent that as we increased our displacement to 25 mm a linear slip beg
