The present site is a collection of resources for rock physicists and those who use the results of rock physics in their work.
Following the three successful workshops held in Golden, USA (2011), Southampton, UK (2013), and Perth, Australia (2015), t
he 4th International Workshop on Rock Physics (4IWRP) will be held in Trondheim, Norway 29 May - 2 June 2017.
The workshop will be organized by Professor Rune Holt of SINTEF and NTNU.

Geomechanics for heterogeneous and time-dependent rocks and its applications to unconventional reservoirs
This special section of Geophysics discusses the inherent heterogeneous and timedependent
nature of unconventional reservoir rocks, and the importance of rock fabric to
geomechanical applications. It reviews measurements of heterogeneity and rock fabric,
obtained at various scales (seismic to laboratory sample scale), and their scaling
relationships. It reviews the rock fabric of layering, lithologic interfaces, mineralized
fractures, and other weak discontinuities present in unconventional reservoirs. It reviews
time-dependent deformation (creep) and time-dependent rock/fluid interactions, for
example, associated to clay and organic content, and their increased surface area. It
integrates these to propose better models and more representative solutions to
geomechanical problems. More information click here.
Submission deadline: 30 November 2016

Ultrasonically-Enhanced static apparatus review
HelloI am wondering if there is any recent review on designs of oedometer/triaxial apparatuses for rock incorporating ultrasonic transducersRegards

Transversely isotropic acoustics: Does anyone know a reason for difference between Vsv(90) and Vs(0)
The usual case is that Vsv(90) equals Vs measured in the bedding-normal direction, but more than once it was found to be different. Couldn't find a satisfactory treatment. Have any Ideas?

Thomson's parameters for anisotropy
In case if we do not have core plugs and also unable to find Thomson's parameters during seismic data processing, how can we calculate these ones (eta, epsilon etc.) from sonic log? Please share your views, literature and numerical formulas. Thanks

What are unresolved issues in rock physics?
At the end
of the 3IWRP workshop in Perth, Australia, one of the popular topics of
discussion was “What do you think are unresolved issues in rock physics?” I would like to
continue and extend the discussion to a wider audience who did not attend the
workshop. Please share your thoughts.
