A creep meter is a device used to measure the extent to which the soil on an active fault line has moved in a horizontal direction. A creep meter works through the use of a wire stretched across a fault line. As the earth moves in a horizontal direction of the creep meter measures the change. Most flow meters work by measuring the free end of a bar whose length does not change. the bars are installed 30 cm-1m metro and cross-section through a fault. The rod made of Invar, carbon fiber, or fiber of quartz. it is typically 6-12 mm in diameter and is placed in the interior of a low-friction telescopic plastic layer. The range of a meter creep is typically 10-30mm and collected the data every 1-10 minutes.So the answer to your question is True.The best of Luck :)
