Geological Log Interpretation. SEPM Short Course Notes 29 ., 169p. Electric Logs There are numerous types of logs that provide a wide variety of information. Well look at the most important 1) Resistivity 2) SP 3) Gamma Ray 4) Neutron 5) Sonic/Density Resistivity Logs Can be used to resolve lithology, but they are most useful for assessing fluid composition.
