    Remember that the PeF is sensitive to silica, and does not distinguish between quartz sand and chert. The distinction is your call, based on regional stratigraphy. Don''t be fooled by anhydrites with their similar PeF values to limestone. With a density of 2.98 gm/cc, an anhydrite will read negative porosity on an equivalent-limestone scale.
