Italian term or phrase: giacitura
Salve.. dopo un po' di ricerche ho trovato che, nel contesto della geologia la "giacitura" (cioe' la posizione che una massa rocciosa assume o ha assunto a contatto con altre masse rocciose) dovrebbe chiamarsi "attitude". Non mi suona tanto, potete confermare o darmi un altra opzione? grazie mille.

dal rif. sopra:

Measuring and recording orientation (i.e., attitude) of strata or other planar features is another important field activity that relates to understanding geological structures and to the making of geological maps. Strike, dip direction, and dip magnitude of rock layers and other planar geological features (e.g., foliation) are obtained in as many places as possible within a study area in order to understand completely all the geological structures (i.e., folds and fault patterns) of an area. Analysis of geological structures can help geologists interpret the conditions of deformation of rocks in an area. Generally, the geologist tries to obtain as many orientation or ***attitude*** measurements as possible in the field area being studied.

dip and strike


Explanation:
strike is the orietation of a horizontal line in a rock layer and dip is the angle the layer makes with the horizontal. That's the first thing a field geologist always measures.

structural attitude


Explanation:
the orientation (structural attitude) of geological strata

Measuring and recording orientation (i.e., attitude) of strata or other planar features is another important field activity that relates to understanding geological structures and to the making of geological maps.

Whilst "giacitura" transaltes literally as lying position - if the text is not too technical you could simply say the "position" of the rock layers....
