From the reviews: qAll in all, Graham Borradaile has written and interesting and idiosyncratic book on statistics for geoscientists that will be welcome among students, researchers, and practitioners dealing with orientation data. That should include engineering geologists who work with things like rock fracture orientation measurements or clast alignment in paleoseismic trenches. It wonat replace the collection of statistics and geostatistics texts in my library, but it will have a place among them and will likely be one of several references to which I turn when working with orientation data.... The text is easy to follow and illustrations are generally clear and easy to read...q(William C. Haneberg, Haneberg Geoscience)To some extent, this depends on the type of compass used. ... The notation for a lineation would be trend and plunge, e.g. 160/15 for the lineation in Fig. ... For simplified and consistent manual plotting with protractors or mapping compasses, some workers avoid using a reference to south, thus all azimuths would appear as ... on traditional surveying or transit compasses like the familiar Brunton model .
