Data from ultrasonic well logging are used to rock type a section on the basis of elastic properties, to study the nature of seismic interfaces and to construct synthetic seismograms [1–4]. Descriptions of equipment, survey methods, and the results of the reduction of ultrasonic logging data have been given in references [5, 6]. However, these references do not contain a statistical evaluation of the accuracy of the data obtained. Such an evaluation is of considerable merit, particularly in the use of ultrasonic logging data for theoretical calculations.
