Abstract. Borehole geophysical logging is a fundamental element of aquifer characterization because it can provide essentially continuous in situ measurements of the petrophysical properties, lithology, location and types of secondary porosity, and pore-water quality (salinity) of Cited by: 1.

Borehole geophysics is frequently applied to environmental investigations, such as hydrogeology to aid site selection, monitoring, determining well construction, and planning remediation. In planning a logging program for environmental applications, one of the most difficult questions to answer is what geophysical logs will provide the most.

This manual is intended to be a guide for hydrologists using borehole geophysics in ground-water studies. The emphasis is on the application and interpretation of geophysical well logs, and not on the operation of a logger. It describes in detail those logging techniques that have been utilized within the Water Resources Division of the U.S.

Geological Survey, and those used in petroleum. Environmental Investigations Geophysical techniques provide key insights into environmental projects. Georadar can be used to detect buried objects, such as underground storage tanks, building foundations, underground tunnels as well as burial sites.

The purpose of this manual is to provide hydrologists, geologists, and others who have the necessary training with the basic information needed to apply the most useful borehole-geophysical-logging techniques to the solution of problems in ground-water hydrology.

Geophysical logs can provide information on the construction of wells and on the character of the rocks and fluids penetrated by. Geophysical borehole logging is a cost effective way of providing vital subsurface information required by geoscientists in groundwater, environmental, mineral and geotechnical investigations.

In newly-drilled boreholes geophysical logging is used. to guide the design of the borehole and its completion (construction logging).
