Men’s desires for prosperity and better quality of life prelude to more and more domestic and industrial wastes. There is serious waste disposal problems in developed countries, India started experiencing these problems since the onset of waste disposal is to decide the dumping site which must not be detrimental The pith of the above discussion is that if the dumping site underlays with fractured and permeable sediments or rocks, migration of the wastes will contaminate surface and groundwater. In view of serious water pollution in industrial area and also contaminated groundwater due to leaching from the wastes, the selection of appropriate dumping site is an important aspect. Here, geophysical well logging techniques can play an important role. This review paper covers the principles and applications of different well logging techniques for determining porosity, permeability, density and temperature of the underground environment.
