The vertical response function of induction logging tools is shown to be derivable from a power spectrum analysis of the measurement. The tool combines the rock conductivities along the borehole to form an output called the apparent conductivity; it is the system impulse response. Logging considered a linear convolutional operation; the Earth's conductivity profile forms a stochastic process.--Modified journal abstract.
