Carbonate depositional environments( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In spite of the great strides made in our knowledge about carbonate depositional environments, their characteristic features have never been synthesized in a single work. This book attempts to bring together this widely disseminated literature. The volume is specifically designed for use by the non-specialist - the petroleum geologist or field geologist - who needs to use carbonate depositional environments in facies reconstructions and environmental interpretations
Dolomitization and limestone diagenesis; a symposium by Lloyd Charles Pray( Book )

10 editions published between 1955 and 2008 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its broadest sense, diagenesis encompasses those natural changes which occur in sediments or sedimentary rocks between the time of initial deposition and the time - if ever - when the changes created by elevated temperature, or pressure, or by other conditions can be considered to have crossed the threshold into the realm of metamorphism. Deciphering the nature of diagenetic processes, and the time or times when they took place, is of critical importance for adequate geological interpretation. Papers in this volume were presented at a symposium on the diagenesis of carbonate rocks held in Toronto, Canada on May 20, 1964 at the joint meeting of AAPG and SEPM
Geology of giant petroleum fields; a symposium of papers on giant fields of the world including those presented at the 53rd annual meeting of the association in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, April 23-25, 1968 by American Association of Petroleum Geologists( Book )

6 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is divided into 3 sections: Carbonate Sediments and Reefs, Yucatan Shelf Mexico; Tectonic Relations of Northern Central America and the Western Caribbean - Bonacca Expedition; and Other Papers on Florida and British Honduras. Although either the Yucatan section or the Bonacca Expedition papers are complete alone, together they provide a more comprehensive and valuable treatment of the geology of the Yucatan shelf / Caribbean area. The subjects discussed in the two sections include Quaternary and recent sediments in the shelf areas, coral reefs and banks, bathymetry, and structural relations
Depositional environments in carbonate rocks; a symposium by Gerald M Friedman( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 1988 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only recently has the science of sedimentology come up with criteria for environmental recognition of specific outcrops, wells, or even hand samples. This observation is especially true of carbonate rocks. The papers in this volume provide a key to the subject of recognition of depositional environments in carbonate rocks, and are based on a symposium held in Los Angeles, California, on April 1967, at the joint meeting of AAPG and SEPM
Studies in continental margin geology( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve of the papers collected are model investigations of a variety of margin environmental processes, related to subjects such as depositional environments, biostratigraphy, organic matter deposition, and oil and gas occurrences as a function of the plate tectonic setting. An additional nine papers model the thermal and mechanical tectonic processes involved in the structural development along continental margins
Structure of typical American oil fields : a symposium on the relation of oil accumulation to structure by American Association of Petroleum Geologists( Book )

25 editions published between 1929 and 1957 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern petroleum geology in the U.S. started in the first decade of the 20th Century when the U.S. Geological Survey began mapping the structure of the rocks in and near old fields in order to discover the various types of structural conditions under which oil and gas are trapped. Structural geology has evolved as a branch of the broader science far more rapidly than have methods of mapping the attitude of rocks at the surface. This volume, published in the late 1920s, was designed to afford authoritative and modern descriptions of the structure of typical oil fields in the United States
Clastic diagenesis( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clastic diagenesis has evolved from a very descriptive science to a much more process-oriented study. This evolution has been driven by the realization that many hydrocarbon reservoirs have significant diagenetic compotents directly affecting porosity and permeability characteristics. This publication contains three sections designed to increase understanding in the processes controlling clastic diagenesis
Underground waste management and environmental implications : Proceedings of the Symposium held December 6-9, 1971, in Houston, Texas, and sponsored jointly by the United States Geological Survey (Grant 14--08--0001----G--48) and The American Association of Petroleum Geologists by T. D Cook( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication consists of papers based on oral presentations at a symposium of the same name co-sponsored by the United States Geological Survey and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. A wide range of technical issues are covered, as well as regulatory and liability concerns. Documentation of two areas in Colorado where earthquakes had resulted from subsurface fluid injection set the stage for modern debates regarding possible similar results elsewhere
Sourcebook for petroleum geology : semicentennial commemorative volume. by Robert H Dott( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is divided into two parts: Genesis of Petroleum, and Migration and Accumulation of Petroleum. The purpose and plan for the book are to present the various concepts that form the basis of the science and art of petroleum geology - the concepts that petroleum geologists live by. Topics in the chapters include: hypotheses for inorganic and organic origin, indirect genesis through transformation of organic matter in sediments, environment of source-bed formation, petroleum maturation and related chemical alterations, and reservoir rock
Diapirism and diapirs : a symposium, including papers presented at the 50th annual meeting of the Association in New Orleans, Louisiana, April 26-29, 1965, and some others by American Association of Petroleum Geologists( Book )

13 editions published between 1968 and 1995 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Diapir' and 'diapirism' come from the Greek 'diapeirein', meaning 'to pierce'. Diapirism 'sensu lato' is a process by which earth materials from deeper levels have pierced, or appear to have pierced, shallower materials; it is divided into magmatic intrusion and diapirism 'sensu stricto' on the basis of the temperature at which piercement occurs. Field and model studies indicate that diapirs have developed as a result of horizontal compression, gravitational instability, or both. Diapiric structures of various types are important for underground storage and nuclear testing
Backbone of the Americas: tectonic history from pole to pole; a symposium by Orlo E Childs( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first article in this book is the address that introduced the technical programme of the 46th Annual Meeting of the AAPG. The organization and presentation of this symposium volume was developed in an orderly geographic continuity. Modern concepts of structural form and the sequence of tectonic events are carefully reported all along the mountainous western margins of the American continents. The relationship of this structural knowledge to the accumulation of oil and gas is constantly emphasized in the 26 papers contained in the volume
Giant oil and gas fields of the decade, 1968-1978( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the purposes of this book, a giant field is defined by an ultimate recovery of 500 million barrels of oil or 3 TCF of gas in the Middle East, North Africa and Asiatic Russia, and 100 million barrels of oil or 1 TCF of gas elsewhere. An international symposium on Giant Discoveries of the Past Decade was held at the 1979 annual AAPG meeting of AAPG in Houston
Reefs and related carbonates : ecology and sedimentology( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume are divided into 3 sections: modern and ancient reefs, reef biota, and sediments and diagenesis, and include: 'Coral Reefs and Their Zonation in Netherlands Antilles'; 'Man's Impact on Coastal Reefs - an Example from Venezuela'; 'Sponges as Reef Builders and Shapers'; 'Use of Corals in Determining Glacial-lnterglacial Changes in Temperature and Isotopic Composition of Seawater'; 'Sequence of Progressive Diagenesis in Coral Reefs'; and many others
