Domino faults [geometric and kinematic]: a system of planar rotating normal faults, in which the dip of a particular stratigraphic datum is approximately constant (e.g., Twiss and Moores, 1992). Synonymous with bookshelf faults (e.g., Ramsay and Huber, 1987, Fig. 23.19) and with rotational planar normal faults of Wernicke and Burchfiel (1982)(From Peacock et al., 2016, Glossary of fault and other fracture networks, J. Structural, Geology, 92, 12-29).
