Abstract
Many geology terms come from mining. In mining, "hanging wall" tells you where the roof of the tunnel is, and "footwall" tells you where the floor of the tunnel is. In fault systems, these terms now mean top and bottom and let you understand what moved up, down, or sideways. Diagrams explain further.
