Title: Optimum Use of Gravity in Exploration: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Frederick E. Romberg

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The techniques and philosophy of gravity in oil exploration are reviewed for the purpose of determining whether better use can be made of the method than has been usual in practice. Suggestions are presented for determining whether gravity will be useful in a particular case. The elements of optimum field practice are listed. Interpretation methods are defined and recommendations are made in favor of better understanding between geologists and geophysicists, in favor of the quantitative approach in interpretation, and against too great a dependence on automatic data processing.
