Encyclopedia of Sediments & Sedimentary Rocks

This accomplished, one-volume encyclopedia covers the sedimentological facets of sediments and sedimentary rocks. It beneficial properties greater than 250 entries through a few one hundred eighty eminent members from world wide, very good indices, move references, and broad bibliographies.

Geological hazards: their assessment, avoidance, and mitigation

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

Submarine massflow sedimentation: computer modelling and basin-fill stratigraphy

Turbidite sandstone successions are universal components of the stratigraphic content material of sedimentary basins, and are vital hydrocarbon reservoirs in lots of components of the realm. This ebook 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 publication offers with the applying of fractal and nonlinear time-series research to seismicity and earthquakes in the framework of earthquake prediction examine. Emphasis is on theoretical foundations in addition to useful implementation and pitfalls to allow readers to behavior their very own analyses.

1995; Gabioux et al. 2005). L. Dominguez isobaths (Beardsley et al. 1995), sediment dispersal is predominantly longitudinal to the shoreline favoring formation of mud capes and banks deflected westwards into the downcurrent direction (Allison et al. 1995; Lefebvre et al. 2004; Plaziat and Augustinus 2004). Additionally the damping effect of these muds results in reduced wave action, and the shoreline is devoid of sand beaches/barriers (Rine and Ginsburg 1985).

Major dispersal pathways of sediments along the coast are shown also in Fig. 2. 5 Sea-Level History During the last 420 ka, at least five major sea-level highstands related to interglacial periods are reported (OIS 1, 5, 7, 9 and 11) (Hearty 1998). Sedimentary records of some of these episodes are present along most of the coast of Brazil, with the exception of its northern portion. 1 High Sea Levels Prior to 120,000 yrs BP Sedimentary records (sand terraces and deposits) from the coastal plains of south-southeastern Brazil have allowed the identification of two high sea levels, which were interpreted to be older than 120,000 yrs, based on truncation relationships and other geomorphologic criteria (height) (Villwock 2 The Coastal Zone of Brazil 25 et al.
