A well logging method is described which measures seismic velocity as a function of depth. The method uses a transient sound pulse, thus making possible the resolution of shear waves. Various systems of sources and receivers for minimizing bore hole errors are discussed. With the most elaborate system considerable accuracy is obtainable in the face of large bore hole diameter variations.
