First step - draw a strike line where line A intersects the 400 m line. Second step - you know that the sandstone layer is of equal thickness and dip, so you can draw a parallel line at the place with line B intersects the 400 m line. This will give you the thickness, as expressed on a horizontal surface. You know what the dip angle is, so getting the real ...

Not knowing the setting and judging from the image alone in this trampled environment, I think we're looking at a form of chemical weathering called "spheroidal weathering". The gist is this (from the linked wiki page): Penetrating water alters the bed-rock along cracks or joints, causing volume changes between altered and unaltered parts. These ...
