A new technique for the analysis of directional and orientational data

Moustafa, A.R. 


Abstract


A new technique (termed sorting technique) is proposed in this study for the analysis of geologic directional and orientational data. A sorted part of the data is analyzed by 3-D vector analysis for accurate determination of the mean preferred direction (or orientation) and plunge (or dip). A PC FORTRAN program (VECTOR) is given herein to facilitate the sorting and vector analysis of data sets. Two examples of geologic L- and S-data also are given and processed to show the applicability of the new technique.
