Abstract: Abstract - An expert system is an intelligent computer program which uses knowledge and inference procedures to model human expert reasoning in a narrow, specialized field. The program replicates the human's heuristic or rule-of-thumb knowledge and allows reasoning with uncertainty; both are critical aspects of human problem solving. The most successful expert systems have been production or rule-based systems which represent knowledge as a set of IF-THEN rules accompanied by a global data base of facts or assertions about the problem being solved. A rule interpreter, separate from the knowledge base, manipulates these rules to make inferences and suggest solutions to the problem. Expert systems in the geosciences have been built in the areas of mineral prospecting, well log analysis, drilling problems, and remote sensing. Although expert systems applicable in geoscience libraries have not yet been constructed, the field is developing so rapidly and so successfully that it is not unrealistic to propose ideas for such systems. For example, one might envisage a geoscience reference advisor or a microcomputer software consultant. Although a number of problems remain to be solved, expert systems hold great promise for geoscience information processin
