Title: Interrelationship of Geology and Geophysics

Author(s): O. L. Brace (2)


Geophysics has advanced to such an important place in the field of structural prospecting that there is a tendency, in some quarters, to relegate the geologist to a position of secondary importance in this field. Geophysics is here regarded as purely a new and complex means of reading strike and dip and, as such, is to be classed as an additional geologic tool.

Geology serves as an indispensable guide to every step of geophysical activity, and without such guidance, the geophysicist can not hope to reach his objective. Lack of coordination between the two technical branches has led, in the past, to much misinterpretation of geophysics and continued future success will depend upon a greater degree of cooperation in preparing the background for geophysical prospecting and in interpreting the results obtained by such methods.
