Title: Microscopic Subsurface Work in Oil Fields of United States

Author(s): R. D. Reed (2)


On the basis of information furnished by subsurface workers in different districts, an attempt is made in this paper to describe the present status of the application of the microscope to the solution of subsurface problems in the oil fields of the United States. Corresponding with the geology of the different areas, the development of microscopic work has assumed widely different forms, but the degree of success attained seems to be uniformly high. Contributions to regional geology made by the new methods are already great, and the promise for the future is bright.
