In this site you can find information on geological faults. To find out what these things are and to learn something of their importance, visit the introduction first. You can also choose topics from the column of icons. Most of this material relates to the first year course in structural geology in Leeds (EARS 1053). However, more advanced materials lie behind if you keep exploring. Alternatively you can choose to scroll through the picture gallery.
