The goal of this session is to promote discussions between scientists who use log data to address academic or industrial problems and scientists who are developing new logging technologies. Emphasis is placed upon problem solving using a variety of technologies and core/log integration

In both cases an endeavour to establish the interdependence between the problem addressed and the technology used will be appreciated.

Geological and geophysical problems could include sedimentology and hard rock analysis, structural analysis of deformation, fracture and porosity, rock physical properties determinations, pore fluid analysis, rock stress and fluid pressure determinations.

Drilling, coring and logging technological developments covering the spectrum of tool sizes and results from a wide range of geological environments are actively encouraged.

Subjects of interest include slim holes techniques, underbalanced, ice and gas hydrate drilling, low environmental impact tools, high pressure and temperature tools, ice logging, geophysical measurements in tunnels, and non-conventional applications of classical logs.
