Series: Developments in Petroleum Science

Elsevier's Developments in Petroleum Science book series is designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of Petroleum Science.



The series covers the fields of petroleum geology, exploration, and engineering in its broadest possible sense. Topics include: origin and accumulation of petroleum; petroleum geochemistry; reservoir engineering; rock mechanics/petrophysics; well logging, testing and evaluation; mathematical modelling; enhanced oil recovery; petroleum geology; compaction/diagenesis; petroleum economics; drilling and drilling fluids; fluid mechanics in porous media; reservoir simulation; production engineering; formation evaluation; exploration methods.
For more information about the series or to submit a proposal, please contact the Series Editor or the Acquisitions Editor, Susan Dennis at susan.dennis@elsevier.com.

Book Series: Physical Properties of Rocks

Most recent volume


Volume 65. Physical Properties of Rocks

Published: 10th December 2015 Author: Juergen Schön
The interpretation of geophysical data in exploration geophysics, well logging, engineering, mining and environmental geophysics requires knowledge of the physical properties of rocks and their correlations. Physical properties are a "key" for combined interpretation techniques. The study of rock physics provides an interdisciplinary treatment of physical properties, whether related to geophysical, geotechnical, hydrological or geological methodology.

Physical Properties of Rocks, 2nd Edition
, describes the physical fundamentals of rock properties, based on typical experimental results and relevant theories and models. It provides readers with all relevant rock properties and their interrelationships in one concise volume. Furthermore, it guides the reader through experimental and theoretical knowledge in order to handle models and theories in practice.

Throughout the book the author focuses on the problems of applied geophysics with respect to exploration and the expanding field of applications in engineering and mining geophysics, geotechnics, hydrology and environmental problems, and the properties under the conditions of the upper Earth crust.
