Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Manage the summary of the subject by annotation. Learn to applicate selected logging metods in the engineering geology, hydrogeology, mining inclusive oil deposit and gas deposit.

Teaching methods



The subject gives the main brief characterization of well-logging method principles. There are given the complexes of logging for various purposes, inclusive of special methodics of measurement, data processing and their interpretation. There is given data characterization a their relation with physical and mechanical rock properties.
