Since a monoclinic system "looks like" an orthorhombic system in the
neighbourhood of the symmetry axis, near-vertical data such as from many
surface seismic surveys and VSPs may appear to be orthorhombic, and this
may lead to an over-simplified interpretation of the fracture systems.
For example, double fracture systems may be mis-interpreted as single
