In normal faults , the hanging wall drops down relative to the footwall. Geology A type of fault in which the hanging wall moves down relative to the footwall, and the fault surface dips steeply. The pre-faulting situation is illustrated in (A).

Groups of normal faults can produce horst and graben topography, or a series of relatively high- and low-standing fault blocks, as seen in areas where the crust is rifting or being pulled apart by plate.

Although not particular to normal faults, relative uplift and subsidence on either side of a surface breaking fault leads to predictable patterns of erosion and sedi­ mentation.
