Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: High Level Radioactive Waste Management 1993


The responses of density and dielectric logs are formulated in terms if the matrix properties, air-filled porosity and water-filled porosity. Porosity values obtained from logs from borehole USW G-2 are in reasonable agreement with estimates from core determinations.
