Abstract

The terms "throw" and "heave" have three independent meanings in fault terminology. The usage of these two terms as suggested by the Committee on Fault Nomenclature of the Geological Society of America has not been universally accepted, nor is it likely to become standard. The writer proposes that the terms throw and heave be abandoned, and that descriptive language be used in fault discussions.
