Normal fault, artwork. Faults occur where the upper part of the Earth's crust breaks due to the stress of processes such as continental drift. A normal fault is produced by forces pulling the fault apart. The hanging wall, the upper side of the sloping fault plane (on the right-hand side of this fault), drops down in a normal fault.
