Red River Fault System

This scene includes the northwestern part of the Red River fault
system at the southeastern part of the site. The Red River fault
is one of the major strike slip faults and structural boundaries
of the region; it is thought to be related to the collision of
India with Eurasia to the west. The continental collision folded
and deformed the surrounding region, pushing out the northern re-
gions to the east. Part of this movement occurred along the Red
River fault, which now confines the Red River. (S33-92-108, 109,
