Whatever the purpose of working in gneiss terrains, a prerequisite for success is a thorough understanding of the geometry and relative age relations of rock units and the sequence of deformation and metamorphism. Because of the three-dimensional complexity of deformation and intrusion relations in gneiss terrains, it is in most cases impossible to understand relations by visiting a single outcrop, or even by means of a small number of transects through the area under consideration. If no detailed geological maps are present, or if the subject of study is insufficiently dealt with on available maps, it will be necessary to map an area in some detail.
