Alternatively, in the southeastern United States, often less than 10 percent of the bedrock is exposed because of abundant weathering, soil cover, and vegetation.

Field books are used to take fieldnotes; they can be anything from a composition type notebook to a spiral, but most use an actual “field book” like those available for purchase here. Fieldnotes refer to qualitative notes recorded by scientists during or after their observation of a specific phenomenon they are studying.
