As far as I can tell, they mean exactly that; I haven't yet competed, but whatever can be used for solving stereonet problems should work.What do the rules mean by "bring...an equal-area projection stereonet with tracing paper and pin"?
Tracing paper means basically relatively see through paper that you can write on. A pin means like http://www.eassecuritytags.com/uploads/pic/P02.jpg (I think they are available on staples or somewhere or something). Lastly, there are multiple types of stereonets for multiple purposes. Basically the rules specify to use the equal-area variety. If you google it, you should be able to look around and find something like http://magician.ucsd.edu/essentials/WebBook539x.png. Be careful to not print out some other type, and you should look it up yourself just to check that out (I just got first thing off google, silly me for not directly checking the site!).What do the rules mean by "bring...an equal-area projection stereonet with tracing paper and pin"?
There are some on the wiki.Can anyone provide a link or two to some really helpful stereonet projection tutorials?
It shouldn't matter too much. I wish I could get my hands on those draft rules...3 more weeks for me I guess.This year's draft rules mentioned that we will need to bring a geological compass... Any suggestion as to which brand/model?
