Marine Petrophysics, 7.5 credits

About the course

This course provides an introduction to marine petrophysics, the study of sediment physical properties and their interaction with fluids. The course covers laboratory and in-situ methods for measuring standard petyrophysical properties of marine sediments. These include, pore space properties and permeability, as well the elastic, geocmechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The course will look at quantitative relationships between these properties, and through numerical exercises, the students will learn how they are commonly applied within industry and research to investigate different marine geological processes. Re-exams may be held on campus.
