English term or phrase: GEOLOGICAL STRIKE
GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY

a two frequency VLF-EM receiver, similar to a Herz Totem 2A, will be used to record the VLF-EM transmissions from both a Line and an Ortho transmitter.*

* The terms line and ortho refer respectively to the orientation of the flight lines with respect to the transmitted field of the remote VLF-EM transmitter. The "line" transmitter will be that for which the magnetic field (H) is approximately parallel to the line direction i.e. perpendicular to the dominant GEOLOGICAL STRIKE.
