for each element
The REV summary in Fig. 6.4 is derived from
observations such as those in Fig. 6.5 , which
shows the contrast between thicker grainflow
beds and the fine laminations of the wind-ripple
strata. The values used to build the REV plot are
based on mini-permeameter data, calibrated
against core data from an analogue oil-field
over comparable lithologies.
The more blocky, homogeneous grainflow beds
achieve an REV at a relatively fine scale, and this
would be measured reasonably well by core plugs.
Log data would offer a good measure of average
