Encyclopedia of Sediments & Sedimentary Rocks

This complete, one-volume encyclopedia covers the sedimentological points of sediments and sedimentary rocks. It positive aspects greater than 250 entries via a few a hundred and eighty eminent members from around the globe, very good indices, move references, and large bibliographies.

Geological hazards: their assessment, avoidance, and mitigation

This booklet is an creation to dangers and man-made dangers that have implications for engineering geology. It examines risks reminiscent of seismic results, volcanoes and floods, and with subsidence, waste disposal and flooring water pollutants. Geological dangers is a necessary publication for pro engineers in civil, geological and making plans components all over the world.

Submarine massflow sedimentation: computer modelling and basin-fill stratigraphy

Turbidite sandstone successions are universal parts of the stratigraphic content material of sedimentary basins, and are very important hydrocarbon reservoirs in lots of elements of the area. This e-book addresses the real factor of mass-flow sedimentation modelling within the framework of basin-fill dynamics and series stratigraphy.

Fractal and chaotic properties of earthquakes

This booklet offers with the appliance of fractal and nonlinear time-series research to seismicity and earthquakes in the framework of earthquake prediction learn. Emphasis is on theoretical foundations in addition to useful implementation and pitfalls to let readers to behavior their very own analyses.

O. Box 488, 4001 Stavanger, Norway 3 Corrigan Associates, 2 The Drove, Ditchling, Sussex BN6 8TR, UK Abstract: The Rotliegendes Group in the Vanguard Field, UKCS, consists of a series of aeolian, fluvial, and reworked aeolian sediments, organized into four broadly correlatable lithostratigraphical units. Within these units, reservoir properties are strongly linked to lithofacies, with aeolian dune sandstones possessing the best porosity and permeability. A comparison of production log spinner profiles (PLT) with detailed sedimentological logs from three development wells shows that gas production is intimately associated with specific lithofacies and their spatial organization.

The effect of this fluid was to dissolve K-feldspar, thereby facilitating compaction of the rock framework, illitization of chlorite, and ankerite formation. Wells Q04 and Q02 could have been located beneath a paleo-gas-water contact during this migration/alteration event, but we have no direct evidence for such an interpretation. The sandstones beneath the gas-water contact in wells Q01, Q03, and Q05 are petrographically similar to gas-saturated sandstones in the wells and do not resemble wells Q02 and Q04.
