Abstract: This article provides sufficient conditions for a closed hyperbolic 3-manifold $ M$ with non-zero first Betti number to fiber over the circle, and to find a fiber in $ M$. Those conditions are formulated in terms of the behavior of the circular characteristic in finite regular covers of $ M$. We define the circular characteristic as an invariant associated to a non-trivial cohomology class $ \alpha $ of $ M$, using a Heegaard characteristic.
