Wireline Standard Data Processing


ODP logging contractor: LDEO-BRG

Hole: 860B


Location: Chile Triple Junction (SE Pacific Ocean)

Latitude: 45° 51.972' S

Longitude: 75° 45.101' W

Logging date: December, 1991

Bottom felt: 2157.1 mbrf (used for depth shift to sea floor)

Total penetration: 617.8 mbsf

Total core recovered: 225.8 m (36.6 %)


Logging Runs


Logging string 1: DIT/SDT/NGT


There is no mention, in the site report, of use of wireline heave compensator to counter ship heave.


Bottom-hole Assembly



Logs at hole 860B were recorded openhole.





Depth shift: No differential depth shift necessary as only one run was recorded. All logs have been depth shifted to the sea floor (-2157 m).


Gamma-ray processing: NGT data have been processed to correct for borehole size and type of drilling fluid (high viscosity mud without barite).


Acoustic data processing: The array sonic tool was operated in standard depth-derived borehole compensated mode, including long-spacing (8-10-10-12') logs. The data is of good quality and does not require any processing.


Quality Control


During the processing, quality control of the data is mainly performed by cross-correlation of all logging data. The data at hole 860B is of good quality.


Hole diameter was recorded by the mechanical caliper device (MCD).
