This paper presents the results from a series of physical measurements conducted on core samples from the Swedish part of the southern Baltic Sea. The samples consist of 16 Cambrian sandstone samples (potential reservoir rock) and 9 Ordovician limestone samples (potential caprock). The two rock types reveal contrasting properties; axial P-wave velocity and density for the sandstone samples are 3.14±0.95km/s and 2.26±0.12 gr/cm3, respectively while for the limestone samples they are 6.09±0.22km/s and 2.58±0.08 gr/cm3, respectively. The scatter of the evaluated properties indicates aleatory variability and epistemic uncertainty in the properties which can be better addressed by further tests on more samples.
