Use of lower hemisphere stereographic projection to plot planar and linear data in structural geology, using the example of a fault plane with a slickenside lineation Geology In electron diffraction, Kikuchi line pairs appear as bands decorating the intersection between lattice plane traces and the Ewald sphere thus providing experimental. EPS - Laboratory Structural Geology Lab Exercise #2 Spring Page 3 of 11 Plotting Lines and Planes The stereographic projection of a line is simply a point, so plotting the representation of the point will be pretty easy. Imagine that the finger below is a linear feature. ItFile Size: 1MB. • Stereographic projection can be used to measure the angle between any two lines. • First the lines are plotted and then then the overlay is rotated until these two points lie on the same great circle of the stereonet and the angle between the two lines is determined by counting the small circle divisions between the points along the great.

Therefore, the structural factor can be evaluated by comparing the cave survey data and the massif discontinuities in 3-D.

Stereographic projection is a useful technique commonly used in Author: Richard J. Howarth. Stereographic Projection Introduction. Stereographic projection is a powerful method for solving geometric problems in structural geology.

Unlike structure contouring and other map-based techniques, it preserves only the orientation of lines and planes with no ability to preserve position relationships.

Structural geology is the study of the three-dimensional distribution of rock units with respect to their deformational histories. The primary goal of structural geology is to use measurements of present-day rock geometries to uncover information about the history of deformation in the rocks, and ultimately, to understand the stress field that resulted in the observed strain and geometries.

The Stereographic Projection E. Whittaker 1. The Purpose of the Stereographic Projection in Crystallography The stereographic projection is a projection of points from the surface of a sphere on to its equatorial plane.

The projection is defined as shown in Fig. Stereographic Projection. Stereographic projection is a method used in crystallography and structural geology to depict the angular relationships between crystal faces and geologic structures, respectively. Here we discuss the method used in crystallography, but it.

The stereographic projection is an essential tool in the fields of structural geology and geotechnics, which allows three-dimensional orientation data to be represented and manipulated. Some existing texts include brief sections on the stereographic method, but do not provide students with an explanation of the underlying principles.

Stereographic projection. In the Structural Geology we use Lambert Shmidt's lower hemispher projection to to the graphical presentation of orientation the geological structures e.g.

folds axis, limbs, banks. The stereographic projection is a projection of points from the surface of a sphere on to its equatorial plane. The projection is defined as shown in Fig. If any point P on the surface of the sphere is joined to the south pole S and the line PS cuts the equatorial plane at p, then p is the stereographic projection of P.

It projects as a point in the middle of the stereonet. The next easiest information to portray is the orientation of a line that has a trend due north or due south.The stereographic projection is an essential tool of the structural geologist which allows three-dimensional orientation data to be both represented and manipulated.

It provides a way of graphically displaying the data collected, which is essential for the recognition and interpretation of patterns of preferred orientation.
