Widely adopted by the petroleum and mining industries and by geotechnical engineers, this book is considered the authoritative guide for use at the wellsite, laboratory, or office. It incorporates modern developments in coring techniques and core handling. It covers all aspects of cores including cutting and recovery, wellsite handling, recognition of coring damage, laboratory analysis, sampling, preservation, and storage. The book also details logging and interpretation, encompassing structural and engineering investigations and sedimentology and emphasizing coverage of the economical development of geological resources.
"This book should be mandatory reading for geology students . . . well written and well illustrated . . ."
