Download Deep-Water Sedimentation in the Alpine Basin of SE France by P. Joseph, S. A. Lomas PDF

By P. Joseph, S. A. Lomas

The Gr??s d'Annot Formation of SE France constitutes a vintage and awesome instance of a sand-rich turbidite process managed by way of synsedimentary tectonics, and has frequently been used as an outcrop analogue for deep-water hydrocarbon reservoirs. over the past 10 years, study efforts via assorted educational and business groups have ended in very important reappraisals of winning rules at the Gr??s d'Annot, relatively at the nature and controlling elements of the depositional approaches, the small-scale structure and series association of the deposits, the tectonic regime of the basin and its influence on palaeogeography, and the interplay among sediment gravity flows and basin-floor topography. This quantity deals a multidisciplinary evaluation and attracts up the 'state-of-the-art' of clinical wisdom in this influential turbidite method. Complementary features are lined, from structural geology, sedimentology and series stratigraphy, to modelling of sedimentary strategies and architectures, geochemistry, reservoir characterization, seismic modelling and makes use of as analogues for deep-marine hydrocarbon fields. This ebook may be of use to either educational researchers (geologists and geophysicists) and execs facing the characterization and modelling of deepwater sediments. additionally to be had: Tectonic elements of the Alpine-Dinaride-Carpathian process - designated book no 298 - ISBN 1862392528 Subsurface Sediment Mobilization (Geological Society specific booklet) - ISBN 1862391416 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on this planet, and one of many biggest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of fine quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign acceptance for the standard of its work.The many components during which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reviews and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications

Introducing Geology: A Guide to the World of Rocks

This introductory ebook explains basically what geology can let us know concerning the international. Many items of serious attractiveness which excite our interest, corresponding to crystals or fossils, are to be came upon via interpreting rocks. these looking for and studying such items achieve even more through understanding how and once they originated.

Coastal Evolution: Late Quaternary Shoreline Morphodynamics

This booklet assesses how coastlines swap and the way they've got developed over the last few thousand years. It introduces a few of the most recent options in coastal morphodynamics, spotting that coasts improve via co-adjustment of procedure and shape. The authors study certain types of coasts--deltas, estuaries, reefs, lagoons and polar coasts--in aspect with conceptual versions built at the foundation of well-studied examples.

The Southern Central Andes: Contributions to Structure and Evolution of an Active Continental Margin (Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences)

This quantity offers an outline of the geotectonic evolution of the primary Andes. The contributions disguise the total spectrum of geoscientific learn: geology, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics and geomorphology. They take care of the interval from past due Precambrium as much as the youngest phenomena within the Quaternary.
