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

By P. Joseph, S. A. Lomas

The Gr??s d'Annot Formation of SE France constitutes a vintage and impressive instance of a sand-rich turbidite approach managed by means of synsedimentary tectonics, and has frequently been used as an outcrop analogue for deep-water hydrocarbon reservoirs. during the last 10 years, learn efforts by means of assorted educational and business groups have ended in very important reappraisals of triumphing rules at the Gr??s d'Annot, quite at the nature and controlling components of the depositional strategies, the small-scale structure and series association of the deposits, the tectonic regime of the basin and its impression on palaeogeography, and the interplay among sediment gravity flows and basin-floor topography. This quantity bargains a multidisciplinary evaluate and attracts up the 'state-of-the-art' of medical wisdom in this influential turbidite approach. Complementary elements are coated, from structural geology, sedimentology and series stratigraphy, to modelling of sedimentary methods and architectures, geochemistry, reservoir characterization, seismic modelling and makes use of as analogues for deep-marine hydrocarbon fields. This e-book should be of use to either educational researchers (geologists and geophysicists) and pros facing the characterization and modelling of deepwater sediments. additionally on hand: Tectonic points of the Alpine-Dinaride-Carpathian approach - detailed e-book no 298 - ISBN 1862392528 Subsurface Sediment Mobilization (Geological Society designated 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 greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of fine quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign recognition for the standard of its work.The many components during which we put up 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 courses

Field Techniques for Sea Ice Research

Up to one-tenth of the world’s oceans are lined with sea ice, or frozen ocean water, sooner or later in the course of the annual cycle. Sea ice hence performs a massive, frequently defining, function within the average surroundings and the worldwide weather approach. This ebook is an international examine the adjustments in sea ice and the instruments and strategies used to degree and checklist these alterations.

Fr) Abstract: The two authors explain how and why the Gres d'Annot successions were chosen for their influential studies in the context of the 1960s and the 1980s. Arnold Bouma explains the origin of the Bouma Sequence in the 1960s, while Christian Ravenne focuses on the significance of the area as analogues of deep-sea fans and seismic stratigraphy in the 1980s. Ravenne recalls the main results obtained at that time: palaeogeographical maps, interpretative and synthetic sections, the spectacular onlap relationships at Chalufy, the strong interaction between seismic interpretation and field data, and the importance of large failures/collapses on the continental slope for the initiation of density surges.
