New perspectives in basin analysis by K Kleinspehn( Book )

19 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the reader with an overview of modern concepts and techniques in the analysis of sedimentary basins. It surveys a wide variety of methods for studying basins, focusing on fundamental approaches rather than regional geology. The coverage includes sources-area characterization, lithostratigraphy and chronostratigraphy, tectonics and sedimentation, Precambrian basins. Written by leading international experts in honor of Professor Francis J. Pettijohn, one of the founders of this field, this well illustrated and throroughly documented book will appeal to researchers and exploration geologists seeking a single resource on current research in basin analysis

Quantitative sedimentary basin modeling by Charles L Angevine( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume introduces the concepts and techniques of quantitative modeling of basin subsidence histories. It also describes some of the methods and results of modeling the development of sedimentary sequences generated by the interaction of subsidence, sediment supply, and sea-level changes. It concentrates on the theory and application of subsidence and stratigraphic modeling by working through specific examples from real or artificial basin sequences

New Perspectives in Basin Analysis( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the extensive field of earth sciences, with its many subdisciplines, the trans fer of knowledge is primarily established via personal communication, during meetings, by reading journal articles, or by consulting books. Because more information is available than can be assimilated, it is necessary for the individual to search selectively. Books take more time from the inception of an idea until publication than any of the other means of communication men tioned. As a consequence, their function is somewhat different. Many good books are a compilation of up to date knowledge and serve as reference or instruction manuals. Some books are a collection of previously published papers dealing with a certain topic, while others may basically provide large sets of data or examples. The Frontiers in Sedimentary Geology series was established both for stu dents and practicing earth scientists who wish to either stay abreast of the most recent ideas or developments or to become familiar with an important topic in the field of sedimentary geology. The series attempts to deal with sub jects that are in the forefront of both scientific and economic interest. The treatment of a subject in an individual volume should be a combination of topi cal, regional, and interdisciplinary approaches. Although these three terms can be defined separately, in reality they should flow into each other. A topical treatment should relate to a major category of sedimentary geology

Flow and Friction over Natural Rough Beds( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When a boundary layer develops over a bed that is hydrodynamically rough at a length scale or scales larger than the grain size (a macrorough bed), as is usually the case where bed forms are present, it is necessary to distinguish among total boundary shear stress and its components, form drag and spatially averaged skin friction. It is known that the mean-velocity field reflects the composite boundary shear stress. Above about one roughness height above the tops of the roughness elements, the velocity does not vary horizontally. Its vertical profile is semilogarithmic and scales with the total friction velocity u*t and total roughness length z ot. This region is here called the integrated logarithmic layer (ILL). Below the ILL the velocity varies horizontally in response to the irregular boundary; this region is called the surface layer. In the first of two sets of experiments reported here, skin-friction measurements were made with an array of flush-mounted hot films at four points on the stoss slope of one of a field of two-dimensional immobile current ripples. In the second set of experiments, the skin-friction vector field was measured around isolated hemispheres, with model sedimentary tails one and four obstacle heights along and without tails
