Multi-Sensor Core Logging (MSCL)
MSCL systems rapidly and non-destructively obtain high-resolution (typically 1 cm to 10 cm downcore spacing) geophysical and geochemical data from sediment and rock cores. The high quality multi-parameter stratigraphy delivered from MSCL systems enables facies classiﬁcation and soil/rock typing ahead of, or in support of a visual description. Ultimately this leads to improved laboratory test planning for any necessary destructive or advanced laboratory testing. The Geotek core logging services team follows strict calibration procedures for each core size and liner type to ensure consistency and accuracy of data collection.
Sediment or rock cores with or without metal or plastic liners up to 1.5 m long and 155 mm in diameter can be accepted. Physical, elemental and mineralogical properties can be obtained from whole or split/slabbed core samples regardless of whether they are within a liner or not. An MSCL dataset provides vital information about core heterogeneity or homogeneity ahead of destructive laboratory testing or visual logging.
