Folds in the Earth's Crust

Folds can be of three types:
  • anticline- the upfolding of the crust, think crest of a wave.
  • syncline- down folding of the crust, think trough of a wave.
  • monocline- usually associated with a fault with only one limb present. Limbs are the "arms" extending from either side of a fold.
