Some Final Remarks and Recommendations

  • Giancarlo Dal MoroEmail author


In the final chapter are summarized a series of practical advices about the efficient acquisition of field data. A general discussion about the joint analysis of several observables is provided together with a few more comparative examples and, in the very end, a synthetic list of the main facts illustrated in the book.
