Due to a large span of the test network and the fact that it serves for two purposes: (1) measurements of a few selected monitored points in the area of sudden geotectonic event, and (2) periodic monitoring of the whole network for the deformation analysis, we propose two variants of the control network geometry:

The Pacific Islands (including Aru in eastern Indonesia) present exceptional opportunities in this respect, because differences in the raw materials available for pottery production 'stem not only from vagaries of local [bedrock] exposure, but also from the contrasting geotectonic settings of different Pacific island groups' (p.

Instead, he believes that the orebody resulted from the mixing of fluids from two paleoaquifers combined with disjunctive tectonic activity, which created the specific lithostratigraphic, geotectonic and paleogeographic conditions for the formation of the deposit.
