Basic Well Log Analysis for Geologists

Easy good Log research is a basic creation to universal openhole logging measurements, either twine line and MWD/LWD, and the translation of these measurements to figure out the normal analytical pursuits of porosity, fluid saturation, and lithology/mineralogy. it truly is prepared by way of the translation targets of the information, instead of via the underlying physics of the measurements.

Variational Methods in Geosciences

The previous few a long time have obvious a excellent progress within the use of variational equipment, some of the most vintage and chic tools in actual and mathematical sciences, as strong instruments of optimization and numerical research. The super accumulation of data at the use of variational tools within the region of the geosciences, including meteorology, oceanography, hydrology, geophysics and seismology, indicated the necessity for the 1st symposium on Variational equipment in Geosciences to be equipped and held in Norman on October 15-17, 1985.

Failure to provide for basic needs can be a potent source of traumatization above and beyond that created by the disaster itself (Ray, 2001). Psychologists in past disasters have played a key role in the initial recovery operations.

Disasters have substantial social and psychological impacts on preexisting social and economic vulnerabilities, which intensifies loss and disruption. Effective disaster intervention, therefore, needs to ensure that the diverse interests and priorities of communal life are integrated into planning and response, especially those of vulnerable persons and groups. Thus, disaster mental health is in need of a comprehensive model to help develop focused interventions and follow-ups. The literature contains a wealth of information with many varied approaches.
