Sample text

In archaeological and site investigation surveys, where large numbers of readings are taken in very small areas, annotated sketches are always useful and may be essential. Sketch maps should be made wherever the distances of survey points or lines from features in the environment are important. Field observers also have a responsibility to pass on to their geological or geophysical colleagues information of interest about places that only they may visit. Where these would be useful, they should be prepared to record dips and strikes, and perhaps to return with rock samples.

Something may then be salvaged even if the correction is wrong. Precise reporting standards must be enforced and strict routines must be followed if errors are to be minimised. Reading the instrument twice at each occupation of a station, and recording both values, reduces the incidence of major errors. Loss of geophysical data tends to be final. Some of the qualitative observations in a geological notebook might be remembered and re-recorded, but not strings of numbers. Copies are therefore essential and should be made in the field, using duplicating sheets or carbon paper, or by transcribing the results each evening.

The need for extra care has to be reconciled with the fact that geophysical observers are usually in more of a hurry than are geologists, since their work may involve instruments that are subject to drift, draw power from batteries at frightening speed or are on hire at high daily rates. Numbers may, of course, not only be misread but also miswritten. The circumstances under which data are recorded in the field are varied but 20 P1: KpB/XYZ P2: ABC c01 JWST016-Milsom December 15, 2010 13:39 Printer Name: Yet to Come INTRODUCTION seldom ideal.
