"I find great value in the FG for Rock Core Logging. I am a field geologist, and I log endless feet of rock core. The FG is easy to follow and very thorough, so it acts as a template that I can rely on to write coherent core descriptions�.

- R. Kyle Donovan, Synterra Corporation

"Field Guide for Rock Core Logging guides our environmental and geotechnical staff towards consistency and completeness in the field. Well done."

- Adam Goldberg, Hydrogeologist, LANGAN

Double-sided, plastic coated guide for improving rock core descriptions and characterizing bedrock fractures on meaningful rock core logs that are clear, consistent, and concise.
