Understanding Faults: Detecting, Dating, and Modeling offers a single resource for analyzing faults for a variety of applications, from hazard detection and earthquake processes, to geophysical exploration. The book presents the latest research, including fault dating using new mineral growth, fault reactivation, and fault modeling, and also helps bridge the gap between geologists and geophysicists working across fault-related disciplines. Using diagrams, formulae, and worldwide case studies to illustrate concepts, the book provides geoscientists and industry experts in oil and gas with a valuable reference for detecting, modeling, analyzing and dating faults.

  • Presents cutting-edge information relating to fault analysis, including mechanical, geometrical and numerical models, theory and methodologies
  • Includes calculations of fault sealing capabilities
  • Describes how faults are detected, what fault models predict, and techniques for dating fault movement
  • Utilizes worldwide case studies throughout the book to concretely illustrate key concepts
