Title: Relationships Between Geologists and Geophysicists: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Previous HitNealNext Hit J. Previous HitSmithTop

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The treatment of this subject is best developed by one who has been on both sides and in the middle. The problem (briefly stated) is the general feeling that the two disciplines are not mutually appreciative of each other and are, therefore, less effective as an exploration team than would otherwise be the case.

One must understand that, as long as exploration continues to change, to foster the introduction of new methods, and to use men trained in a wide variety of specialties, complete mutual appreciation should not be expected. Complete appreciation will be possible only when the exploration industry is stagnant. It is management's business to optimize the situation by vigorous use and continuous training of earth scientists, and it is everybody's business to avoid unreasonable attitudes and statements.
