The volume contains sections on Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf and Lacustrine shorelines, covering both Holocene and Pleistocene deposits, representing a summary of decades of research into coastal and continental-shelf evolution of North America
Incised-valley systems : origin and sedimentary sequences( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Incised valleys were not widely recognized prior to the 1980s. As a result, many successions have been re-examined and incised-valley fills are being found in rapidly growing numbers. This volume is an outgrowth of this widespread interest in incised-valley sedimentation
Applications of paleomagnetism to sedimentary geology by D. M Aïssaoui( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in the field of sedimentary geology will likely result from continued development of new ideas, questioning of old dogma, and, most importantly, providing means for testing these new hypotheses. It is hoped that the union of these two disciplines will help address many fundamental geological questions, such as the perennial problems of precise age-dating, stratigraphic correlation and geometries, understanding the timing and nature of post-depositional diagenetic fabrics, and the intriguing relationship between hydrocarbons and magnetization. The reader will find an unusual diversity of research topics presented in this volume
Sedimentology and geochemistry of modern and ancient saline lakes : based on a symposium( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of papers grew out of a four-day symposium held at Saskatoon, Canada in August, 1991. The selected papers from that conference deal specifically with the sedimentological, inorganic geochemical, and hydrological aspects of salt lakes and their stratigraphic records. The four sections contain papers on: modern saline lakes; sedimentation and diagenesis of late Quaternary salt lakes; and ancient (pre-Quaternary) Lacustrine sequences
Permo-Carboniferous carbonate platforms and reefs( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within the evolving Permo-Carboniferous 'landscape, ' a wide diversity of carbonate platforms and reefs flourished. They ranged in size from small mounds to mega-platforms, some of which are important mineral and petroleum reservoirs. It is the diversity which Permo-Carboniferous rocks offer that has led to their intensive study by researchers from industry and academia around the globe."
Tidalites : processes & products by International Conference on Tidal Sedimentology( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tidal processes are important agents of sediment transport and deposition. Recent development of better tools for recognising tidal deposits (e.g., tidal bundles and tidal rhythmites) has also revealed that such deposits are more common and extensive than previously thought. This volume presents the latest ideas on tidal sedimentation, including work concerning the tidal flats of the Wadden Sea, the area where modern-day studies of tidal sedimentation began; the origin, interpretation, and uses of tidal rhythmites; and the sequencestratigraphic context of tidal sediments
Isolated shallow marine sand bodies : sequence stratigraphic analysis and sedimentologic interpretation( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isolated shallow marine sand bodies are significant hydrocarbon reservoirs and understanding sand body genesis and geometry is critical to successful exploration and exploitation of these deposits. This volume stems from a 1995 SEPM sponsored targeted research conference that brought together the proponents of the differing interpretations to discuss facts and principles as they relate to isolated shallow marine sand bodies, using the controversial Lower Campian Shannon Sandstone as the focus for discussion
Shelf sand and sandstone bodies : geometry, facies, and sequence stratigraphy by D Swift( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applies the insights gained from the study of the shallow-marine boundary layer and the technology of petroleum exploration to contintnental shelf and continental margin deposits, providing a new viewpoint to the subject
Marine authigenesis : from global to microbial( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 33 papers focuses on various aspects of authigenic and diagenetic marine minerals and related global elemental cycling. It includes the most recent advances in knowledge concerning the occurrence and origins of phosphorites, glauconites, dolomites, siderites, manganese-iron associations, barites, ironstones, and other marine chemical sediments/sedimentary rocks of early authigenic/diagenetic origin
The deposition of organic-carbon-rich sediments : models, mechanisms, and consequences by Society for sedimentary geology (Etats-Unis)( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depositional models for organic-carbon-rich sediments have been the subjects of both great interest and great controversy for many years. These sediments serve as the ultimate source of virtually all oil and gas. They also represent the interface between biological and geological processes and provide critical evidence for the state of the atmosphere and oceans. The twelve papers in this volume represent the cutting edge of research in this topic. They explore the origin of organic-carbon-rich sediments through a variety of techniques, including sedimentology, geochemistry, paleontology and computer modeling
Middle East models of Jurassic/Cretaceous carbonate systems( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

River deltas : concepts, models, and examples( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deltas are amongst the most environmentally and economically important coastal sedimentary environments. Studies of deltas lag behind research in both fluvial and deep-water depositional systems, as well as more geomorphologically oriented land studies. This knowledge lag reflects both a reorientation of the the petroleum industry in the last two decades toward deep-water systems, as well as the difficulty of working across the shoreline with the traditional tools used for oceanographic or land-based work. However, deltaic studies are experiencing a renewed focus, because of their global importance in environmental and other societal concerns. This volume stems from a special session, "Deltas: Old and New," held at the Annual Geological Society of America conference in October 2002, that was convened to highlight these new directions in deltaic research.---Publisher's description
Aquifer characterization( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spatial variation of sedimentary aquifer properties (e.g., porosity and permeability) must be characterized in order to develop accurate models of groundwater flow and solute transport. The purpose of this volume was to bring together examples of the most recent research by sedimentologists, geophysicists, and hydrogeologists working on characterization of aquifer heterogeneity
Micropaleontologic proxies for sea-level change and stratigraphic discontinuities( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume demonstrates clearly that micropaleontologic proxies of environmental change provide a powerful dimension to the interpretive potential of stratigraphic sequences produced by changes in relative sea level and eustasy. Studies in the volume range from paralic to bathyal environments, span Pennsylvanian through Holocene stratigraphy, encompass a variety of microfossil groups and include a wide spectrum of techniques and paleoenvironmental proxies
Giant hydrocarbon reservoirs of the world : from rocks to reservoir characterization and modeling( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reservoirs described in this volume are located in the Middle East, Asia, West Africa, North and South America. The authors explore historical and alternative approaches to reservoir description, characterization, and management, as well as examining appropriate levels and timing of data gathering, technology applications, evaluation techniques, and management practices in various stages in the life of individual development projects. The giant fields discussed address issues important to reservoir description, characterization, and management from both geologic & engineering perspectives
