Acoustic Properties of the Rocks

  • Yevgeny A. Kozlovsky
Part of the Exploration of the Deep Continental Crust book series (EXPLORATION)


The ability of rocks to transmit elastic energy is controlled by their acoustic properties, which are classified into two groups, kinetic and dynamic. In the section of the Kola well these properties were studied on core samples taken from the well and by logging.
