-Normal Faults:a dip-slip fault where the hanging wall moveddownrelative to thefootwall.-Reverse Faults:a dip-slip fault where the hanging wall moveduprelative to the footwall.-Thrust Fault:Reverse fault with angle less than 45o~Strike-Slip Fault:Faults where the movement (slip) between adjacent blocks was in the strikedirection.~Fold terms:-Axial plane: the plane of mirror symmetry dividing the fold into two limbs-Hinge Line: line formed by the intersection of the axial plane and a bedding plane-Horizontal fold: where the hinge line is horizontal
