GEOL 4320/6320 Exercise 1: Hanging a cross section through Crowistan Concession 1

His Serene Highness, the Emir and Grand Pasha of Crowistan, is pleased to grant a concession area for exploration by Bulldawg Petroleum.  Logs from twelve wells have been made available to Bulldawg Petroleum.  Your first assignment is to hang an east-west structural cross-section through the concession area, using the four logs from holes with 25N coordinates in the Crowistan Geodetic System.  Your cross-section should be hung correctly, and it should have all of the logs to the same scale.  The document should have a block or area giving a title, the name of the person who constructed the section, the date, and the vertical exaggeration.  The document that you hand in for this assignment need not have any correlation lines; the point is only to produce a document with the four logs hung correctly.

The logs made available by the Emirate are the following:
Well 2154: pdf and jpeg file. 
Well 2159: pdf and jpeg file. 
Well 2164: pdf and jpeg file. 
Well 2169: pdf and jpeg file.
