density log A well-log (record) of the density of the rocks penetrated by a drill hole. Normally it is based on the output from a gamma-gamma sonde, with compensation for the effects of the mud cake. It is particularly useful for the identification of evaporites, and when examined in conjunction with the neutron-log it can provide an indication of the presence of gas zones.
