Title: High-Speed Digital Computers in Stratigraphic and Facies Analysis

Author(s): W. C. Krumbein (2), L. L. Sloss (2)


Rapid expansion of facilities for high-speed computation at reasonable cost on a service basis makes it possible for the geologist to free himself of the routine computations involved in making facies maps. Some of the conventional procedures for compiling data and designing data cards are described, and a program is given for computing facies percentages and ratios. This program may be used directly on any IBM 650 computer with a standard wiring board. Suggestions are offered for application of the basic program to a variety of three and four end-member systems.
