The analytic procedure used in the disentanglement of superimposed structures in catazonal rocks is reviewed, and the advantages and limitations of the "paper and scissors" method are discussed. Examples from West Greenland, where the "paper and scissors" method made it possible to trace regional structures formed during consecutive orogenies, are cited.
