Short summary
All rocks have fractures (cracks) that can influence virtually every process acting on Earth's surface where humans live. Yet, scientists have not standardized their methods for collecting fracture data. Here we draw on past work across geo-disciplines and propose a list of baseline data for fracture-focused surface process research. We detail the rationale and methods for collecting them. We hope their wide adoption will improve future methods and knowledge of rock fracture overall.
