*Surfaces almost transverse to circular pseudo-Anosov flows*

Let M be a closed hyperbolic 3-manifold which fibers over S^1, and let F be a fibered face of the unit ball of the Thurston norm on H^1(M;R). By results of Fried, there is a nice flow on M naturally associated to F. We study surfaces which are almost transverse to F and give a new characterization of the set of homology directions of F using Agol’s veering triangulation of an auxiliary cusped 3-manifold.
