Factors that determine the type of features resulting from earths movements are;

  • The nature of the rocks - Rocks that can easily break can lead to the formation of faulted features while rocks that are flexible will lead to the formation of folded features.
  • Age of rocks - Young rocks can easily bend and therefore will lead to the formation of folded features while old rocks will easily crack and will therefore lead to the formation of faulted features.
  • The intensity and scale of forces involved.
