Book Description. This is a field manual to aid in the analysis of sedimentary successions. It looks at topics such as: sandstone; trace fossils; limestones; and tectonic signatures in the basin fill. This is a field manual to aid in the analysis of sedimentary successions. It looks at topics such as: sandstone; trace fossils; limestones; and tectonic signatures in the basin fill. For facies analysis, all the layers were identified in the m thick studied section of the Aghajari Formation (Fig. 5) accurately and their individual thicknesses were measured and nominated following the procedures presented in Miall (, ).Nomenclatural assignment was based on particle size, sedimentary structures, and beds geometry (Miall, ), and the sedimentary structures were. Sediment Provenance: Influences on Compositional Change from Source to Sink provides a thorough and inclusive overview that features data-based case studies on a broad range of dynamic aspects in sedimentary rock structure and deposition. Provenance data plays a critical role in a number of aspects of sedimentary rocks, including the assessment.

Sedimentary Facies Analysis: A Tribute to the Research and Teaching of Harold G. Reading. Editor(s): This book celebrates the professional career of Harold Reading, who has played a leading role in the development of the IAS, and has been at the roots of the development of 'facies sedimentology' as an art in itself and as a major tool in.

Martinius works for Statoil R&D with additional experience from technical service (production and exploration) as well as field development. His main interests are in clastic sedimentology and stratigraphy of fluvial and shallow marine systems, fauna-substrate relationships, and static and dynamic reservoir characterization for hydrocarbon production.

Sedimentary successions are described in terms of seven facies states: gravel, cross-bedded sand, flat-bedded sand, crosslaminated sand, alternating beds, parallel-lamination, and diamicton. Proportional thickness, preferred vertical position, and transition probabilities together with grain-size and paleocurrent analysis form the basis of. Interpreting sedimentary successions. Principles of Sedimentary Basin Analysis Chapter 4 of this book contains a thorough review of the subject of facies and facies analysis, with practical. Sequence stratigraphy is based, for the most part, on the recognition and correlation of a variety of stratigraphic surfaces that collectively can b SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology), ISBN , p. 35– These are best placed at the base of fining-upward successions (as determined by facies analysis and/or log. In geology, a succession is series of strata or rock units in chronological order. Rock successions can be seen in cross-sections through rock, for example in a road cutting or cliff. With sedimentary layers of rocks, newer units will be above older units.
