Question: 2 below is a mapview of a mine adit showing...

Question details

2) Below is a map-View of a mine adit showing a series of minor faults that occur n a homogenous rock unit. The up-and-down-thrown sides of the faults are labeled with a U, and D, respectively. Plot the fault planes on a stereonet and determine the orientation of the principal stresses. Please show your analysis. Hint: The planes will broadly define two sets of planes, they are roughly conjugate. Plot the average plane for each set, and use them to solve this problem. Note that these are real data, and therefore are NOT going to be perfectly parallel and/or conjugate. (30 points) 15 28 D54 25 47 105 UID DIU 184
