How are faults, foci, and epicenters related? Faults that are experiencing no active creep (relatively consistent yet minor movements) may be considered â??safeâ?. Rebut or defend this statement.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 21, 2019, 8:21 pm ad1c9bdddf
Hello! I hope this posting helps you in your studies!
Here are the definitions:
Fault: a break in a rock mass along with movement has occurred.
Focus: the zone within the Earth where rock displacement produces an earthquake
Epicenter: the location on Earth's surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake
How are these related? A fault is where movement is ...
In this solution, I discuss the relationship between foci, epicenters, faults and earthquakes. I also touch upon the dangers involved with actively moving faults versus faults experiencing no creep.
