Title: Where Will Young Graduates in Petroleum Geology Acquire Field Experience

Author(s): Frederic H. Lahee (2)

The trend of petroleum geology is toward subsurface work, but proper interpretation of subsurface geological problems requires abundant field experience. Thus we are faced with a dilemma, a problem which demands thoughtful consideration, but which, in any case, may not reach wholly satisfactory solution. Toward this end, and from a broad viewpoint, we present a suggestion concerning State geological surveys.
