A fault next to a fault next to a fault...

Trying to motivate myself (not working, yet) I'll let you get a feel of something scary. The image is a drawing of the fault tectonics on the French side of the Upper Rhine Graben foothill zone. Basicly on the opposite side looking from where I work. My part is just like that. Faults everywhere. Wohoho!

Image taken from Illies (1977)

Take a loot at the scale and keep in mind: only big faults are included.
