Waves and fields inside a borehole

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The modeling techniques for waves and fields in a borehole environment were are reviewed. Electromagnetic measurements inside a borehole can be classifed into induction, electrode and propagation. In induction measurements, eddy currents are induced by a primary coil in a rock formation amdth the dectection of the secondary magnetic field is done by the eddy currents. An electrode is in contact with the rock formation to inject currents into the rock with a voltage source in the electrode measurements.
