Title: Core Resistivity Profiles and Their Bearing on Dipmeter Survey Interpretation

Author(s): Z. V. Jizba (2), W. C. Campbell (3), T. W. Todd (4)


Bedding features in cores have been compared with corresponding dipmeter log curves. Special equipment was constructed to insure a correct match for this comparison. Results suggest that some apparently good "picks" from a dipmeter log do not correspond with actual bedding planes. The converse is also true: valid bedding features may not have a diagnostic expression on the log. Correlations selected on the basis of peak or valley location on the dipmeter curves can provide misleading information. Before we can confidently process dipmeter data by means of automated computer techniques, we must be assured that our knowledge of the relationship of rock-character to dipmeter-curve development is correct and founded in fact.
