A monoclinal fold.
A fold in rock connecting two vertically offset, horizontal sections of sedimenary rocks.
A geologic formation in which all the strata are inclined in the same direction.
A fold in the land surface whose shape resembles that of a carpet draped over a stair step.
An area of increased dip in otherwise gently dipping strata.
A bend or fold in gently dipping horizontal strata.
A local steeping of an otherwise uniform gentle dip.

a "step-up" in the rock layers
A bend in rock layers where a steep dip occurs resulting in one side being lower than the other.
A geological term for rock strata that dip in one direction.
a local steepening in an otherwise uniform gentle dip (tilt) of layers of rock; a "flexure" or "draping" of rocks over something, often a buried fault.
A geologic or topographic formation inclined at a single, consistent angle from the base.
A geologic structure, specifically a fold, in which the rock layers are horizontal, then inclined, then horizontal again. Examples are the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park and Comb Ridge in southeastern Utah.
An open, step-like fold in rock over a large area.
