Applied Geophysics, U. S. S. R. illustrates a collection of selected papers that demonstrates methods in geophysical research. The journal presents the developments, done by Russian scientists, in the field of geophysics with bias toward the application of geophysical methods to the search for oil. The compendium is divided into four parts encompassing 17 chapters. The articles are grouped into topics that discuss seismic methods, gravimetry, electrical sonde methods, and geophysical methods of logging. Certain chapters focus on simplified methods for determining the intensities of purely longitudinal waves and how the different parameters of the medium affect their frequency rate. The methods for measuring the force of gravity at sea; methods of electrical exploration in inaccessible regions of Siberia; and studies on use of radioactive logging in bore-hole investigations are covered as well. The book will be of interest to geophysicists, geologists, applied physicists, and students of physics and geology.
