Formation of Nappe

Recumbent folds are formed when the compressive forces is so strong and thus, the both limbs of the recumbent folds are parallel and horizontal. But, if the compressive force will further be increased, one limb...

Types of Fold

The types of fold depends on several facts e.g. the nature of rocks, the nature and intensity of compressive forces, duration of the operation of compressive forces etc. On the basis of different  factors...

 Wave like bends in the crustal rock due to tangential compressive force resulting from horizontal movement caused by the endogenetic force originating deep within the earth, such bends are called Fold. Folding or bending,...
