9 After building their own strat... Compare with published version on the web-site (also with memoir text)

10 Build cross-section Test Murchison Add struct data AIMS one-day transect to the Stack of Glencoul Web-site? Show ideal results Structure tutorial

11 Simplified cross-section

12 Interpreted views Useful if the weather is poor

13 Structural tutorial Reinforces lessons from the field….

14 Raw field slip Un-inked ADD ANNOTATION Not from their mapping area !

15 Raw field slip Un-inked Also show inking-in….
