Quoting VAkkron Eerie build, and well executed. I like the way you did the layering and offset, it looks great.
Thanks!

Yes, it did have a moving hanging wall and footwall, and even a single "marker bed" to show the offsets. However, it was too abstract. Besides, I don't think any of the kids really believed that mountain-sized chunks of Earth can move in the first place. Tried the old "you know your fingernails grow all the time, but you can't see it happening" tack, but they just blinked at me, as if one had nothing to do with the other.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Excellent demo of stratigraphic relations across a normal fault, Joe. The realistic touches in the surrounding landscape help to make it real. Once made a hand-cranked Technic demo (since dismantled) of dip-slip fault kinematics for a presentation to a local high school group about to leave for a Yellowstone field trip. However, I think I would have gotten the point across better if I'd supplemented it with a static display of the end result like yours.
Thanks, and I would have loved to have seen that demo! Did it have movable hanging and foot walls?
