Wells in the Piceance Basin show anomalous large-magnitude (up to 200 millivolts), large-interval (greater than 2000 ft (610 m)) self-potential (SP) log responses in the Mesaverde gas producing interval that can be best explained by electrokinetic potential resulting from water flow towards producing Mesaverde wells.

Statistical classification methods consisting of the k-nearest neighbor algorithm (k-NN), a probabilistic clustering procedure (PCP), and a novel method which incorporates outcrop-based thickness criteria through the use of well-log-indicator flags are evaluated for their ability to distinguish fluvial architectural elements of the upper Mesaverde Group of the Piceance and Uinta basins as distinct electrofacies classes.

The primary goal of the AAPG Astrogeology Committee is to emphasize the use of geosciences in the development of off-world exploration energy and other natural resources for development in the foreseeable future. This is under the guidance and input provided by previous NASA geologist astronauts, Dr. Harrison “Jack” Schmitt and Dr. James “Jim” Reilly and by industry professionals.
