This Reference Manual and Short Course cover topics needed to understand dipmeter and image log acquisition, data processing, and presentation. Interpretation limitations and processing options are stressed. Use of logs to aid definition of structure, stratigraphy, and electro-facies concepts are covered in detail with numerous case histories.

QUICK FACTS:

RF-08: 241 pages, 7 chapters, detailed table of contents, computer-ready math, access to all META/LOG spreadsheet software

RF-08S: as above PLUS 3 narrated video slideshows.

RECOMMENDED FOR: all geoscientists, geotechs, engineers, managers and CEO's.
