Archie Series No. 2. Co-Published by AAPG and ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company.

Understanding resistivity-tool response and resistivity-log interpretation for formation evaluation is vital for the matching of the reconstructed deep-reading resistivity logs with the field log curves.

AAPG Archie 2 introduces the fundamental concepts required. Resistivity-logging-tool physics and measurement accuracy are reviewed, and forward- and inverse-modeling resistivity-tool responses are introduced. In the case studies presented, well-deviation, shoulder-bed, bed-thickness, borehole, mud-resistivity, and invasion effects on restivity-log responses are discussed.

This volume has been written for geoscientists and engineers working with and interpreting resistivity logs, petrophysicists and reservoir engineers integrating resistivity-based and capillary-pressure-based quantitative calculation of formation water saturation, and formation evaluation specialists.

The volume is not meant to be an all-inclusive reader. It is an excellent resource on the subject of strike-slip faulting, their settings, their characterization, and the relationship to restraining........

The references given at the end of each paper are extremely helpful and add significant value to the volume by allowing the reader to follow courses of inquiry that they have after assimilating the volume. Although the graphics were very good, overall the reader would have greatly benefited from the inclusion of a CD containing higher-resolution copies of the graphics with captions, which could be enlarged for better viewing. In general, I found the volume to be highly prized and instructive.

I found Tectonics of Strike-Slip Restraining and Releasing Bends to be highly informative and an excellent resource for references. I recommend that anyone remotely interested in structural geology, engineering geology, neotectonics, or seismic hazards should purchase the book, read it, and reread portions of it periodically as your interests warrant.
