Variation in quartz [c]-axis LPO strength (as indicated by fabric intensity) and the relative proportion of point and girdle components of the LPOs with distance from the MTL in the Tsukide (ab) and Ako–Miyamae (cd) areas. Cluster = S1 – S2, girdle = 2 × (S2 – S3), where S1–3 represent the eigenvalues of the normalised orientation tensor (Vollmer 1990)
