Research Interests
My research primarily involves unraveling aspects of the evolution of fault systems and rift basins. Studies of fault growth and evolution focus on fault segmentation, linkage, fault scaling laws, and structures associated with border fault systems of rift basins. Current and recent research projects include: fault-population studies of normal faults in outcrops and scaled physical models; studies of oblique rifting and basin inversion in scaled physical models and in outcrop; and characterization of fracture networks in rift basins.
Much of my field work has been carried out in the eastern North American rift basins, principally the Fundy, Newark, and Danville basins. The photo shows the Triassic-Jurassic boundary in the Fundy rift basin, Nova Scotia, Canada. My students and I are part of the

March, 1998
Tim Henstock spent a few nights not long ago setting off minor explosions and firing air guns across a swath of northern California. Henstock, a geologist at Rice University in Houston, was making a seismic portrait of Earth's crust beneath the San Andreas Fault. He found that the fault has much deeper roots than geologists had suspected, plunging 15 miles through the crust all the way into Earth's mantle. The San Andreas Fault system marks where the northbound Pacific plate grinds past the southbound North American plate. In northern California the system consists of three roughly parallel hurts: me San Andreas, the Maacama, and the Bartlett Springs. Henstock was trying to find out if the three faults were connected, as some earthquake models have assumed. To map the faults, Henstock set off a series of seismic waves, both offshore and on land. From a ship, he fired big air guns underwater. The pulses from the guns generated artificial seismic waves on the seafloor. As seismic waves travel through the crust and mantle, different types of rock alter the waves' speeds. The seismic waves also reflect and refract in telltale patterns, depending on the type of rock they travel through. Henstock recorded these seismic waves with sensitive receivers placed along a 60-mile stretch of seafloor. On land, he set off explosive charges and recorded the resulting seismic waves. From the speed and direction of the waves he recorded, Henstock was able to map the rocks under the fault system.

    A fault is a crack in the Earth's crust along which movement has occurred.

  • Dip-slip faults
    Movement along dip-slip faults is vertical; one side moves up and the other side moves down.

    I N the earth, a fault is a line of fracture in the rocks where the two sides move by each other. The movement can be up, down or sideways, and it is caused by pressure and tension in the rock. When a sudden movement happens along one of these fault lines, an earthquake happens. A fault can be very small, it can be seen in a single quartz crystal, or it can be very long. The Great Rift Valley in east Africa is over 6000 miles long! California has a famous fault called the San Andreas fault, where the Pacific plate slips past the North American plate. Photos of the ground where faults occur show how rock beds have shifted over the years. Even the river channels get crinked when movement happens along a fault. Although California has more earthquakes, we've had bigger ones in the middle of the continent. Measuring earthquakes
    A recording device called a seismometer is used to measure earthquakes. The Richter scale is what we hear about mostly, and scientists also use a scale called the Moment-Magnitude. The Richter Scale.

    Faults and earthquakes
    Like most stories in geology, this one starts beneath the surface. As you may know, the continents we live on are parts of moving plates . Most of the action takes place where plates meet. Plates may collide, pull apart, or scrape past each other.

    The sudden movement generates an earthquake at a point called the focus . The energy from the earthquake spreads out as seismic waves in all directions. The epicenter of the earthquake is the location where seismic waves reach the surface directly above the focus. A normal fault. Click on diagram to see labels.
    Normal fault
    We classify faults by how the two rocky blocks on either side of a fault move relative to each other. The one you see here is a normal fault . A normal fault drops rock on one side of the fault down foot wall resting or hanging hanging wall
    Now, consider this: if we hold the foot wall stationary, gravity will normally want to pull the hanging wall down, right? Faults that move the way you would expect gravity to move them normally are called
