Faults occur on many different scales and differ in their kinematic histories. But all faults are similar in that they also deform their surroundings to a certain extent. We invite contributions which address this issue, whether as case studies from, e.g., seismics, outcrops, modelling or experiments to theoretical/analytical considerations of fault movement, growth and their near-field effects.
