Abstract: This technique has shown itself to be extremely successful at Roberts Bank, in a highly variable bottom material, where shallow depths were not a significant problem, and some borehole data were available. Such an application for acoustic core analysis provides the ideal case for cost effectiveness, as an extremely expensive borehole program offers the only viable alternative.
