Transcrurrent & Transform Faults 2) Make a table contrasting transform and transcurrent faults with respect to: a) termination of displacement; 3) b) Length of fault over time; Transcurrent- Fault displacement proportional to fault length, and is always less than the length. Transform- length can increase or decrease c) Displacement over time; Transcurrent- Fault displacement is a maximum near center and diminishes to 0 at the tip. Transform- Displacement can either vary from place to place or be constant depending on whether the length in increasing or decreasing. d) Relationship between length and displacement. Transcurrent- Transform- Displacement can be greater than the length of the fault 4) What are horsetails? Smaller branching reverse or normal faults at the termination of the main fault.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
