Unformatted text preview: Chapter 19 Strike-Slip Tectonics Introduction 1) What are the consequences of transpression and transtension? 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. Which type of fault are they associated with? Strike-slip 5) What are the three examples of continental transform faults in Fig. 19-1&2? San What are the three examples of continental transform faults in Fig....
