  3. 3. DEFINITIONFolds are curves which are like an alternation ofconvex and concave waves. For geometrical point ofview, the concave areas are called synclinal and theconvex areas anticlinal. Folds are create by tensionstresses.
  4. 4. TIPESThey are two types: Anticline fold Syncline fold
  5. 5. ANTICLINE FOLDLinear, strata normally dip away from axialcenter, oldest strata in center.
