Encyclopedia of Sediments & Sedimentary Rocks

This complete, one-volume encyclopedia covers the sedimentological facets of sediments and sedimentary rocks. It gains greater than 250 entries by means of a few one hundred eighty eminent members from worldwide, very good indices, pass references, and broad bibliographies.

Geological hazards: their assessment, avoidance, and mitigation

This e-book is an advent to risks and man-made risks that have implications for engineering geology. It examines risks equivalent to seismic results, volcanoes and floods, and with subsidence, waste disposal and flooring water toxins. Geological risks is a vital ebook for pro engineers in civil, geological and making plans parts world wide.

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 components of the area. This publication 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 ebook bargains 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 functional implementation and pitfalls to let readers to behavior their very own analyses.

27 28 Kislov and Toropov INTRODUCTION The targets of our exploration are the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea (including the Sea of Azov). This paper describes the relationship between sea level and climate based on links between variations in sea level and the runoff from rivers. During the final late Pleistocene and postglacial periods, the Caspian Sea fluctuated between regressive and transgressive stages. The Black Sea experienced fluctuations as well, but these were mainly controlled by the world ocean due to water exchange through the Bosporus Strait.

5 times greater than the present; see Fig. 9) does not support the “flood hypothesis” proposed by Ryan et al. (1997). This hypothesis holds that the –120 to –150 m stage of the Black Sea lasted until ca. y. P. The estimated high river runoff does not agree with a low level and isolated-lake status of the Black Sea throughout the LGM and LGT. , 1995). To maintain a low stage at the LGM and LGT, the values of effective evaporation should have been much higher than today. Reconstructions of Tarasov et al.
