Abstract

Most geological studies are based on data obtained from outcrops, from subsurface studies, at sea, in the laboratory, or from theoretical and analytical experiments. It is essential that this information be correctly obtained, analyzed, and well understood before making any interpretations, drawing too many conclusions, and developing forward models. Many interpretations are based on first impressions familiar to the researcher, either from personal experience or from literature.
