These field notes document the work of James Francis Luhr in Roccamonfina [Italy] during 1978. The entries provide data on: date, type of field work, location identifier (e.g. RP-3),color and characteristics of the geological formations, commentary on their properties, description of terrain, measurements in meters and centimeters, and count. Occasionally, the drawings of the cross sections of the geological structures are given to mark the location of the sample. Notes on sample photos are provided as well. The front cover is dated by 1978, but the notebook entries seem to be for 1980.
