The fieldwork in geology

5.- Samples analyse

For each defined unit it will be necessary to take at least a sample to analyse its properties. With this we will find out the rock’s name and classification.

Apart from the samples of the defined units, we can take other ones from different points of the outcrop (from cracks precipitation mineral, from some fossils found, etc.) and analyse them.
