Making field measurements by geoscientists and engineers is often a critical part of field investigations and includes making measurements in remote and difficult to reach locations and in all kinds of weather.   The locations are sometimes in the mountains, desert, or deep in the forest.   The measurements may relate to a rough field survey, measuring the strike and dip of outcropping sedimentary rocks, or attitudes of structural features (joints or faults).   One standby of geoscientists and engineers for many years is the Brunton Pocket Transit (or Brunton Compass). 

Brunton Pocket TransitsBrunton pocket transit

Professional pocket transits by Brunton are available directly from Brunton or from a number of resellers.   These useful, rugged, and compact field instruments can be found on our Brunton Products page.   A number of different instruments are available depending on your individual need.

About Brunton Pocket Transits

Brunton CompassBecause the magnetic declination varies from point to point across the earth, each individual Brunton is adjusted for the location in which it will be used at the manufacturing facility.   This need precludes the possibility of a supply of pre-manufactured ("on the shelf") instruments.  Instrument adjustments require some time.   Therefore a period of several weeks should be allowed after ordering before the instruments are actually shipped.

To explore other field measurement dilemmas and possible solutions, check out our "Field Measurement Dilemma Page".    Geologic Resources is currently a reseller of Heron Instruments water level and oil/water interface meters and Golden Software, producers of Surfer, Strater, Grapher, Didger, Voxler, and MapViewer which are hyperlinked below:Contouring, Digitizing, Plotting, and Mapping Software
