The tape-compass-clinometer method was used in gauging the thickness of stratigraphic units on topographic bevels by taping the intercepts. The dips of the beds and slope’s inclinations were determined. The appropriate formula was used in the thickness estimation. The graphic columnar section was finally compiled on the Sed. Log 3.0 version to display the geology. The worked example includes the measurement of stratigraphic section of rocks in the District Poonch, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. The study was helpful in understanding the fluvial depositional environment of the Nagri Formation in the region and favours meandering and braided fluvial depositional pattern in continental environment.
