Abstract

Many familiar landforms, destructional and constructional, are related to fractures and particularly and ultimately to lineaments. Water and weathering have been concentrated along fractures and many familiar landscape features, including angular river patterns, escarpments, inselbergs, and bornhardts, have been caused by the exploitation of crustal weakness. Whatever their origin, and in addition to being planes of dislocation, fractures are planes of transmission. Thus structural factors play a major role in landform and landscape development
