|Description:||This scheme specifies terms used to summarise the overall character of faults (ie, a summary of movement type and orientation) as defined by the IUGS Commission for Geoscience Information (CGI) Geoscience Terminology Working Group. Although the terms in this vocabulary are in common usage with definitions in standard texts or glossaries like Neuendorf et al. (2005), the definitions here attempt to establish unambiguous criteria to distinguish the categories, and are thus listed with this vocabulary as the source. By extension, this vocabulary includes all concepts in this conceptScheme, as well as concepts in any previous versions of the scheme. Designed for use in the faultType property in GeoSciML ShearDisplacementStructure elements.|
