A fracture surface along which rocks have moved relative to each other.Fault zone:
A zone of sheared, crushed or foliated rock, in which numerous small dislocations have occurred, adding up to an appreciable total offset of the undeformed walls. All gradations may occur between multiple fault planes and single shear zones.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fault_(geology)
In geology, a fault
is a planar fracture or discontinuity in a volume of rock, across which there has been significant displacement. Large faults within the Earth's crust result from the action of tectonic forces. Energy release associated with rapid movement on active faults is the cause of most earthquakes, such as occurs on the San Andreas Fault, California.
A fault line
is the surface trace of a fault, the line of intersection between the fault plane and the Earth's surface.
Since faults do not usually consist of a single, clean fracture, geologists use the term fault zone
when referring to the zone of complex deformation associated with the fault plane.
