Steep river canyons, sea cliffs and mountain sides, and roadcuts yield natural cross sections, but most cross sections are made by projecting surface features into the Earth.
To measure the shear strains on the cross sections, biaxial strain gages, which were similar to those used in the tension tests, were bonded on both cross sections, but the gage axes were inclined at [+ or -]45[degrees] with respect to the length direction of the specimen.
The goal of the present study was to determine whether the precision of Greenland halibut age estimates could be improved by examining the stained cross sections of their sagittae rather than the surfaces of the whole sagittae, and to determine whether there was a significant difference in age estimates made with each of the two methods.
