By ruling the declination on a protractor). 2. The adjustment for angle of inclination of the magnetic lines of force, which go down to the north in the northern hemisphere and down to the south in the southern hemisphere. Unless the compass needle has a counterbalancing weight, it may not swing freely on its bearings when the compass is held level. Many compasses have the counterbalance set for the northern hemisphere; when imported into the southern hemisphere, there can be significant problems even at midlatitudes.

It is also worth remembering that with the exception of some chemically precipitated units and volcanic ash layers, time horizons do not coincide with lithologic contacts, although they may appear to do so in terms of temporal resolution capability. Because sedimentary facies shift position during transgression or regression, contacts between these units will be time transgressive, with the angle between time lines and lithologic contacts reflecting the rate of transgression. Consequently, a single contact may change in age by several million years over a distance of a few tens of kilometers.

Define three-dimensional geometry of each trace wherever possible; give formal genus/species name if known. Infer behavior of progenitor organism if possible. Note any difference in sediment texture/composition within the trace relative to that surrounding it. Check for evidence of boring. Note concentrations of traces relative to lithology and sedimentary structures. Structural Data Attitude of principal bedding planes, variability in strike and/or dip. Use a standard procedure such as dip and dip direction, or dip and strike (using clockwise convention) when recording the attitude of bedding planes (see "Use of the Compass" section in this chapter).
