Discover how Earth's surface changes over millions of years. Learn to recognize the folds and faults that are produced by Earth's dynamic interior.

Folds and Faults provides an illustrated overview of two significant topics in geology: folds and faults. Understanding folds and faults helps to explain how mountains form, how layers of rock change shape over time, and the underlying cause of earthquakes.
This app contains illustrations, animations, and photos by Dennis Tasa as well as annotated photos by Michael Collier and Ed Tarbuck. Animations show how folds and faults change the position and angle of rock layers. Illustrations and annotated photographs help to illustrate these concepts and aid in the identification of folds and faults in the field.

This app is great, y’all should make more.

I love this app but wish it had more, y’all should at least add Unconformities like Angular Disconformities, Nonconformities, Disconformities, and also the basic principles of Geology like Superposition, Lateral Continuity, Faunal succession, and maybe history, intrusions, exclusions, etc

I always wonder why apps what entire video games but no larger, full educational apps like you could get on CD software in the 90s.

Y’all should do a fuller, larger app with this stuff, it has potential but apparently of society values nice games over education

Difficult Concepts Demystified!

Folds and faults are a 3D concept over Deep Time that is beyond the limits of a 2D textbook. Now you can carry a set of clear explanations and demonstrations into the field. Combine this with other Tama apps and Geology becomes a dynamic subject!
