Encyclopedia of Sediments & Sedimentary Rocks

This complete, one-volume encyclopedia covers the sedimentological points of sediments and sedimentary rocks. It positive factors greater than 250 entries via a few a hundred and eighty eminent participants from around the globe, very good indices, move references, and vast 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 dangers equivalent to seismic results, volcanoes and floods, and with subsidence, waste disposal and floor water toxins. Geological risks is an important publication for pro engineers in civil, geological and making plans components 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 very important 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 study. Emphasis is on theoretical foundations in addition to functional implementation and pitfalls to let readers to behavior their very own analyses.

Example text

Early Cretaceous, probably Albian (≈105 Ma) (Truswell, 1991) coal-bearing fluvial sediment in Ocean Drilling Program drill-hole 741 in Prydz Bay, East Antarctica (Turner and Padley, 1991) was deposited after breakup on the conjugate margin. CONNECTIONS BETWEEN INDIA, ANTARCTICA, AUSTRALIA, AND AFRICA Radial drainage system about the ancestral Gamburtsev Mountains Within the Gondwanaland province of Pangea (Fig. 40), the individual lobes of the Gondwana master basin occupied the central-peripheral part of the broad Zambezian (faultaffected) terrain (ZT) in a system of consequent radial drainage that focused on the ancestral Gamburtsev Subglacial Mountains at the core of an East Antarctic paleoupland.

The encircled numerals denote the source of information (Table 7). The Triassic age of sediments in the Krishna-Godavari area is from Prasad and Jain (1994). D3, FA3, and U3 are explained in Table 5. of the Gondwana master basin; and the sea covered part of Western Australia (Fig. 35). In the Amery area of East Antarctica, depjosition started with the Radok Conglomerate (R) shed from the sides of a graben that came off the Gamburtsev upland (I). The upper part of the Ecca Group of the Karoo basin prograded northeastward from the rising Cape foldbelt.

In company with southern Africa and East Antarctica, all but the earlier part of the Triassic is a sediment gap or lacuna in Peninsular India during uplift and erosion. , 1983, p. 158). Gondwanides II is represented by a lacuna between the youngest (240 Ma) preserved folded Beaufort Group and the overlying flat Carnian (230 Ma) coal-bearing Molteno Formation; in eastern Australia, it is represented by the lacuna between the 234-Ma Moolayember Formation, the youngest deformed, and the 230-Ma Ipswich Coal Measures, deposited during extension of the foldbelt.
