Thrust Fault

We just learned about the Aftershock that happens after the biggest part of the earthquake.

We've learned about the Dip Slip fault before.

Another fault type is a Thrust Fault.
This is a lot like the dip-slip, but the slip goes in the opposite direction.
Sometimes they even call it a reverse thrust fault.
