Gives an account of the renewal of faulting in the Marlborough district, New Zealand, which is developing as a result of intermittent movement along faults that outcrop or actively break the surface. Unique reverse scarplets have recently been formed by the renewal of fault movement in a reversed sense on or close to old fault lines after long in-activity. The use of the term "earthquake rent" to describe features produced by recent renewal of faulting is discussed.
