The pioneering paintings of Gus Archie moved log interpretation into log research with the advent of the equation that bears his identify. next advancements have combined empiricism, physics, mathematical algorithms, and geological or engineering versions as equipment utilized to petrophysical measurements in boreholes around the globe. Principles of Mathematical Petrophysics reports the applying of arithmetic to petrophysics in a structure that crystallizes the topic as a subdiscipline applicable for the workstations of this present day. the subject material is of large curiosity to either educational and commercial execs who paintings with subsurface info utilized to power, hydrology, and environmental issues.
This e-book is the 1st of its variety, in that it addresses mathematical petrophysics as a different self-discipline. different books in petrophysics are both large descriptions of device layout or interpretation options, regularly in an ad hoc remedy. It covers mathematical equipment which are utilized to borehole and middle petrophysical measurements to estimate rock homes of fluid saturation, pore kinds, permeability, mineralogy, facies, and reservoir characterization. those tools are verified via quite a few case reviews and summaries of functions. Principles of Mathematical Petrophysics is a useful source for each person operating with information on the topic of petrophysics.
