Summary:Often the outlines of tectonically deformed pillows cannot be used directly to give the true bedding and way-up directions; however, when the pillows have been only moderately strained in a homogeneous manner and when the strain history has been coaxial certain procedures outlined here may allow the determination of true bedding and way-up.
