### Re: GeoLogic Mapping C

Rake/pitch never made any sense to me. Can you please link a source with info on it?

Anyway, for the question:

What is the difference between aquifers and aquitards?

An aquifer is a body of water underground that can be tapped for a well or such, can be either confined or unconfined. An aquitard is a zone of rock that restricts the flow of groundwater from one aquifer to another.

When small local strike-slip faults form at the same time with other faults, causing a "tear" rather than a big displaced block
