ABSTRACT: Bedding orientation measurement is a remote sensing application used in the field of geology, but the results are often unsatisfactory when the bed is dislocated along the strike direction. This paper proposes a new method called Multiple-line Method that is designed to improve bedding orientation measurement. This technique uses the bed as a vector, and fits the vectors as a plane to obtain the bedding orientation. This study employs the case of Yili Basin and measures 25 bedding orientations using the Multiple-point and Multiple-line methods, respectively. The result shows that the errors from the Multiple-line Method are mostly smaller than those from the Multiple-point Method when a bed is discontinuous.

Keywords:bedding orientation, Multiple-Line Method, remote sensing, Yili Basin
