1 Deforming the Earth’s Crust
Beth Roland Team 5 Mountaineers Eighth Grade Science

2 Deformation Deformation is the process by which a rock changes shape

3 Folds in the Geologic Column
Folding is the bending of rock layers because of stress in the Earth’s crust.

4 Faulting Faulting is the breakage of rock caused when stress is applied to them. The surface along which the layers slide past each other is called a fault. Normal Faults-when a normal fault moves the hanging wall moves downward relative to the footwall.

5 Faulting Reverse Faults- when a reverse fault moved the hanging wall moves up relative to the footwall.
