How are faults, foci (plural of focus), and epicenters related Faults that are experiencing no active creep (relatively consistent yet minor movements) may be considered "safe." Rebut or defend this statement with what you have learned so far about faults. Faults are fractures in the earth's crust. Typically earthquakes occur along known fault lines. A focus for an earthquake event is where the earthquake begins. There may be more than one focus, in which case they are called foci. The earthquake's fracturing must begin at a focus. An earthquake occurs when there is a release of energy which occurs at the focus point. Both fault lines and the foci are inside the earth's crust and not on top of the surface. In order to pinpoint or visualize where a focus has occurred, we use a point...
