Oblique-Slip Fault

We just learned about the Dip-Slip Fault.

Another type of earthquake fault is the Oblique-Slip Fault.

This is when two the tectonic plates move, and the earth's crust bumps into each other in both a Strike-Slip and Dip-Slip way.

That means the earth went side to side, and up and down.
