Title: Integrated Geology and Geophysics: ABSTRACT

Author(s): T. R. Lafehr


We have an increasing need for geologists and geophysicists to work together on exploration projects. Pitfalls or weakness in a subdiscipline may be minimized or even avoided by an integration of all available data (e.g., geologic constraints, well logs, core analyses, seismic and nonseismic geophysical information).

Two case histories are provided to demonstrate the importance of integration. The first is lithologic identification by combining seismic reflection, refraction, and gravity data in a situation where any one tool, if used alone, could not solve the problem. The second geologic example is a structural problem taken from the overthrust of Wyoming. The examples include drilling results after the interpretations were performed.
