What is faulting?
Asked by Sushil Kumar | 16th Jul, 2017, 06:53: PM
When the crustal rocks are subjected to horizontal compressional pressure, they develop fractures or cracks along the line of weakness. These lines of fracture are known as faults. In faulting, blocks of rocks may move up or down. Block mountains and rift valleys are formed as a result of faulting.
