Freebase

  1. Cuesta

    In structural geology and geomorphology, a cuesta is a ridge formed by gently tilted sedimentary rock strata in a homoclinal structure. Cuestas have a steep slope, where the rock layers are exposed on their edges, called an escarpment or, if more steep, a cliff. Usually an erosion-resistant rock layer also has a more gentle slope on the other side of the ridge called a dip slope. Because the slope of a homoclinal ridge dips in the same direction as the sedimentary strata, the dip angle of this bedding can be calculated by v/h= tan where v is equal to the vertical distance and h is equal to the horizontal distance perpendicular to the strike of the beds.
