Trailing [geometric and kinematic]: where two new faults or other types of fractures are connected via an older fault or other type of fracture, on which renewed displacement occurs to connect the two later faults or other types of fractures. Trailing faults are illustrated by Nixon et al. (2014) and trailing veins shown by Virgo et al. (2013, Fig. 12c).(From Peacock et al., 2016, Glossary of fault and other fracture networks, J. Structural, Geology, 92, 12-29).
