6 Geologic Maps and Structures (Chapter 7) (7 th Edition) or (Chapter 8) (8 th edition) For this assignment you will require: metric ruler, protractor, colored pencils and eraser. Objectives: you should be able to explain how geologists describe the orientation of folded rocks and faults using the measurements strike and dip; draw and interpret a simple geologic block diagram; describe the various types of folds and how they form; recognize and diagram anticlines, synclines, domes and basins in both geologic map and cross-sectional views; discuss the formation and types of dip-slip and strike-slip faults; recognize and diagram the various types of faults in both geologic map and cross-sectional views; interpret a simplified geologic map and use it to construct a geologic cross section. TYPES OF STRESS: COMPRESSION TENSION SHEAR Directed pressure/stress toward each other, associated with converging plate margins. Directed pressure/stress away from each other, associated with diverging plate margins. Directed pressure/stress sliding past each other, associated with transform plate margins. TYPES OF STRAIN: ELASTIC: PLASTIC: OR DUCTILE: BRITTLE: Non-permanent deformation, once stress is released, the material returns to its original configuration. Permanent deformation, often ductile curved in appearance. Rigid deformation, where the material will rupture and break. STRIKE AND DIP: STRIKE: DIP: Describes the orientation of the strata relative to the compass directions (N, S, E, W) FOR EXAMPLE: STRIKE: N45W Describes the amount and direction of tilting of the strata. FOR EXAMPLE: DIP: 45N Describe the type of deformation you would expect if you dropped each of the items listed below onto a concrete floor. Elastic, Brittle, or Ductile Deformation Material Type of Deformation Wine Glass Modeling Clay China Plate Tennis Ball Pizza Dough 6

7 Fill in the blanks to formulate a series of handy-dandy rules to help in the interpretation of geologic maps and cross sections. a. The following rules refer to relative ages of sedimentary beds. Choose OLDER" OR YOUNGER" for your answers. When synclines and basin are eroded, the beds exposed in the center are than the beds exposed away from the center. When anticlines and domes are eroded, the beds exposed in the center are than the beds exposed away from the center. b. The following rules refer to beds and contacts between beds, as seen in map view. When folds have been eroded, the contacts between beds, as seen on a horizontal surface, are straight and parallel. Choose plunging or non - plunging. When plunging synclines have been eroded, the contacts between beds, as seen in map view, bend so as to point the direction of plunge. Choose toward or away from. When plunging anticlines have been eroded, the contacts between beds, as seen in map view, bend so as to point the direction of plunge. Choose toward or away from. The outcrop width of a bed as the angle between the surface and the dip of the bed decreases. Choose increases or decreases THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS USE BLOCK DIAGRAMS REMEMBER STRIKE AND DIP READINGS INCLUDE BOTH AN ANGLE AND COMPASS DIRECTIONS! FOR EXAMPLE STRIKE: N45 W, DIP: 60 N For these 3D diagrams, just estimate the angles involved, e.g. 15, 30, 45, 60, and over 75. Block A 7
