Introductory petrography of fossils by Alan Stanley Horowitz( Book )

17 editions published in 1971 in English and German and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book for beginners. Not geological beginners, because an introductory course in paleontology and some knowledge of the petrographic microscope is assumed, but for beginners in the study of the petrography of fossil constituents in sedimentary rocks. Fossils are studied for various reasons: 1) to provide chron ologic (time) frameworks, 2) to delineate rock units and ancient environments, or 3) to understand the past development (evolu tion) of living plants and animals. All of these uses may be at tained through petrographic studies of thin sections of fossils embedded in sedimenta

Annual and fourth quarter report for 1977-78 by Paul Edwin Potter( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies of shales in the Appalachian area are reported (mainly in the form of abstracts of reports or manuscripts). They discuss the geology, lithology, stratigraphy, radioactivity, organic matter, the isotopic abundance of carbon and sulfur isotopes, etc. of shales in this area with maps. One report discusses Devonian paliocurrents in the central and northern Appalachian basin. Another discusses sedimentology of the Brallier Formation. The stratigraphy of upper Devonian shales along the southern shore of Lake Erie was also studied

Lithologic and environmental atlas of Berea sandstone (Mississippian) in the Appalachian Basin by Paul Edwin Potter( Book )

6 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Berea Sandstone occurs throughout much of the Appalachian Basin where it is an oil and gas reservoir and is quarried as a building stone. Because of its uniform porosity and permeability in the quarries at South Amherst, Ohio, it has been used by petroleum engineers in North America as a "model" reservoir sandstone. Currently, the Berea is locally classified as a "tight gas sand." This report has described 6 outcrops and 22 cores of the Berea. These descriptions are accompanied by wireline logs of the Berea section in the core holes and gamma-ray profiles of outcrops to help explorationists, reservoir geologists, and petroleum engineers better interpret the lithology and depositional environments represented by the many thousands of wireline logs in the Appalachian Basin. This study contains a brief review of the depositional environments likely to occur in the Berea, illustrates the various sedimentary structures of the Berea that can be seen in both outcrops and cores, carefully documents vertical profiles of grain size and sedimentary structures, and concludes with a summary of resolved problems
