"Fault" in context

A fault is a seam or crack in the Earth's crust, which is caused by the sudden release of energy when rocks on either side of the crack slip or move past one another. Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions tend to occur along these faults as the energy release is much greater than the usual stresses and strains that the rocks experience when the plates move. Faults are relatively common occurrences and result from the movement of tectonic plates or from other geological sources. The activity along the fault can range from minor tremors to major earthquakes that can cause significant destruction.
