geographic features


Explanation:
This phrase includes, but is not limited to, faults (which, strictly speaking, are geological rather than geographic). -- Note, too, that proper English usage demands "geological" (rather than "geologic"), but "geographic" (rather than "geographical"). Inconsistent, but true...! -- Best, HC

Explanation:
Concuerdo con Alex Padres en usar "faults". Quizás en algunos casos se podría usar "accidented", como en accidented landscapes (terrenos accidentados). Esto se puede ver en el Diccionario Politécnico EN>Es de F. Beigbeder. Espero sea de ayuda.
