Relative Accuracies of Thickness Based on True and Apparent Dips

William F. Tanner


In many relatively common situations, stratigraphic thickness can be measured (and the section described) more satisfactorily and more accurately in the direction of a convenient apparent Previous HitdipNext Hit than in the direction of true Previous HitdipNext Hit. This is true because the most important single part of the clinometer method is the determination of the individual sights. The latter are more accurate where based on a reliable apparent Previous HitdipNext Hit than where based on an uncertain true Previous HitdipTop.
