Title: Geophysics

Author(s): E. A. Eckhardt (2)


The paper points out that near-term progress in geophysical prospecting is more likely to come from further evolution of existing methods than from revolutionary new developments. Better utilization of geophysical results is likely to follow from more effective cooperation between geologists and geophysicists. For the most effective use of geophysical data, geologists will require a greater familiarity with the background and basic facts of geophysical techniques.

The paper points out that in addition to localizing acres to lease and prospects to drill, substantial contributions to general geology can and do result from geophysical work.

Reference is made to a series of simultaneous observations of the tidal variation of gravity and to the bearing of such observations on our knowledge of the general geology of the earth.
