Oman, Batain coast: normal faults in outcrop of Jurassic radiolarite chert

Batain coast, Oman. Outcrop of Jurassic radiolarian chert thrusted up by the collision of Africa against Eurasia. The normal faulting is post-sedimentary. In the unfaulted state the detailed correlatability of all features is remarkable. Photo Inger Domingo.

Notes: you can copy the images below and insert them in a presentation as a movie. It is nice to also copy them backwards to close the faults again.
