THE ORIGIN OF RADIOMETRIC ANOMALIES IN PETROLEUM BASINS-A PROPOSED MECHANISM

Jerome G. Morse, Robert Zinke Colorado School of Mines Golden, Colo. Radiometric mapping as a petroleum exploration tool began some seven decades ago.1 The results reported have predominantly been positive. Nevertheless, the method lacks broad acceptance, due in part to insufficient understanding of its technical basis. In this article, we address the geochemistry and physics that underlie radiometrics.
