A major hurdle for geologists is learning how the theory and the many formulas of log interpretation are translated into practice. The learning process is slow, and takes place only after a good deal of repetitive effort is supported by actual experience with logs. There are absolutely no shortcuts. Memorizing log patterns and curve values just doesn’t work, and can, in fact, prove disastrous. However, to assist the process of changing what's done into how it's done, case studies can be an invaluable asset. The ones presented here cover several geographical areas, geologic ages, lithologies and log packages. This variety is not necessarily a classic representation of any of the categories. The reader will need to engage his or her intellect in finding appropriate solutions for each problem, and will also need to apply material already learned from thorough study of the preceding text.
