Ancient and modern stromatolites are potentially a challenge for petrophysicists when characterizing biosediments of microbial origin. Because of the heterogeneity, sometimes very cemented and lacking porosity, sometimes highly porous, these widely differing states can be used to develop techniques that can have wider application to addressing the representative elementary volume (REV – single or multiple REVs) challenge in microbial carbonates. Effective media properties – like porosity – need to be defined on REV scales and the challenge is that this scale is often close to or significantly larger than the traditional core plugs on which properties are traditionally measured....
