structural analysis
Scope Notes: Used for the analysis of structural features on a relatively small scale (from thin section to outcrop). The analysis may lead to interpretation of larger-scale features such as folds, fractures, and faults, or tectonics. Before 1976, also search fabric analysis; structural petrology, or microtectonics. As of 1998, may be used with deformation.
