In the world of life, it is important for everyone to improve and to explore their knowledge in their life. As geosciences student, we really need toexplore more knowledge about geoscience, which has many tools that we have to know. Not only for geosciences students, but also for professional geoscientist .
As we have known, geophysics has many tools which has the functions and advantages, and has a relation each other . For example, at seismic world, we need to get a wealth of information in wells to gain an understanding of subsurface condition. Because we know that subsurface condition has many different types of contents and layers. Borehole seismic is one of methods to get that information and it deals with recording and analyzing physical properties of down hole such as density, resistivity, wave slowness, and seismic reflection strength. So we must have wealth of information in wells, for making us easier when we have to finalize seismic tools, such as when we have to make an interpretation of that. Until recently, borehole seismology has been relegated to a secondary role in seismology because it generated only 1D or 2D images. So, gain understanding your knowledge in borehole seismic.

As geoscientist it is important for us to have multiple geological tools as ammunition when doing exploration. One of the major topic and studies we need to master is the branch of geology we ought to become familiar with , clastic sedimentology. Clastic sedimentology is the branch of Geology which studies sediment and sedimentary rocks which are composed of particles that are the products of weathering close to the earth’s surface or at the earth surface. Therefore when dealing with clastic sedimentology we are concerned about gravel, mud, sand and formation into rocks with particulate materials . The aim of this short course is to make sure students are introduced well into the terminology and fundamental concepts which are necessary when dealing with sedimentary rocks.
Many motives we need to base why we should understand clastic sedimentology. First of all we know that because we as living beings interact largely with our earths surface and we know for a fact that the earth even though predominantly made out of igneous and metamorphic rocks , half of its surface is made out of clastic sediments. The surface which is dominated by shale and sandstone is in close contact with human beings. We interact with the sedimentary surface through the earth’s cover of clastic sediments or even sedimentary rocks. We have been blessed because we are able to do anything we want towards this sedimentary surface so it is very important to have studied various properties of our earth by studying clastic sedimentology.
