A system for automated correlation of digitized well logs based on lithostratigraphic characters has been developed. Modular in design and concept the system employs a mean value, moving window algorithm for zoning digitized well logs, a stretching algorithm, a cross-correlation program, and a mapping function that highlights correlations between zones. In an application of this system to the Upper Glen Rose Formation of northeastern Texas, a number of distinct lithostratigraphic zones were detected and interpreted in terms of deltaic buildups, growth faulting and shelf deposition.
