In order to understand the systems of pottery distribution better, fabric analysis was applied to 8000 vessels from Moravia, Upper Silesia and Lesser Poland.
of Minnesota, US)--are "determining flow/emplacement directions in sediments, intrusive, and extrusive rocks; establishing principal orientations (as well as estimating magnitudes) of finite or incremental strains; and ascertaining the extent of possible deviations of NRM [natural remanence magnetization] vectors from the palaeofield orientation due to anisotropic and/or subsequent deformation." The editors present these 26 papers as representative of the current state of the art in magnetic fabric analysis, covering physical foundations, geological applications, and directions for future research.
