3 Pre-reading task

a) scan the text and answer the following questions

- Where can the basement rock be found?

- By means of which device may micromagnetic anomalies be detected?

- What is a magnetotellurics?

- What is the function of tortion balance? Name the main features of this instrument.

- When was the first seismometer used? Who was the inventor of this device?

b) skim the text and define the main ideas



By 1920, explorationists knew of other geological factors besides anticli­nal folding that control oil and gas accumulations. Surface mapping alone could not help in searching for these other factors. Fortunately, geo­physical methods of exploration came into existence about this time.

Geophysics is the study of the physics of the earth, its oceans, and its atmosphere. Petroleum geologists are most interested in the earth's magne­tism, gravity, and especially seismic vibrations, or vibrations of the earth. Sensitive instruments can measure variations in one of these physical quali­ties that may be related to conditions under the surface. These conditions, in turn, may point to probable oil- or gas-bearing formations. Searching for oil and gas through geophysical means does not guarantee a successful find, but the combination of geophysical information and geological know-how reduces the chances of drilling a dry hole.
