What are fault slices? Fault slices are made by slicing through a 3D volume parallel to a fault surface but displaced a small distance (say, 25 to 50 m) into the downthrown and upthrown fault blocks. This displacement avoids the distortions often present very near the fault itself. Let one fault slice be made on the upthrown block and another be made on the downthrown block. The differences observed between these two fault slices indicate variations that occur along the fault surface.
