Faults range is size from small fractures in a local outcrop to great fault systems that can extend for thousands of miles. Heat from inside the earth drives mantle convection (hot material rises, cool material sinks, Figures 6-1 and 6-2).
Fault systems evolve and change over time—driven by plate tectonic forces associated mantle convection influencing the rigid lithosphere. The rise and fall of masses of material in the material in the mantle create forces that move the rocks in the cool and brittle lithosphere near the Earth's surface.
The confluence of these four rivers was located at the head of the Persian Gulf, but a Gulf that may have been inland from where it is today.
