It is proposed that the usage of the term structural facing be extended to include fault structures. Fault facing is defined as the direction in a fault plane which is at right angles to the trace of the bedding and is directed towards the younger beds. Certain types of faulted structures are found to have diagnostic patterns of facing variation.
