Question details

Problem 5: Cross-section analysis 14° 12° 23° well 12° 15° 17° 15° MAP 1 km CROSS-SECTION X Question 1. Use the bedding dips to define two hingelines. Plot these on the map. Calculate hinge angles and plot the hinges on the cross section. Question 2. Use the hinges to predict where the fault changes dip to horizontal. Question 3. Extrapolate the fault into the air and bend it to connect to the fault beneath the island of upper plate dipping 23 Question 4. Complete the cross-section using the principles of fault-bend fold theory. Question 5. Label two active fold hinges and one passive fold hinge. Question 6. Calculate the elongation strain between X and X. Please show your calculations, and use the correct sign!
