Rock Drilling Books

  • The Jordan Rift Valley

    The book presents a synthesis of almost 150 years of research along the Jordan Rift Valley, where tectonics and climate variations interwove to create a succession of natural landscapes, inhabited by changing communities of plants, animals and Man. The complex geological and environmental evolution since its inception in the Oligocene, are ...

  • Well Logging for Earth Scientists

    Well logging lies at the intersection of applied geophysics, petroleum and geotechnical engineering. It has its roots in the tentative electrical measurements in well bores which were made by the Schlumberger brothers some 80 years ago in the earliest days of systematic petroleum exploration. Today, a variety of specialized instruments is used to ...
