Memoir 36 – The Geological Record of Neoproterozoic Glaciations
In recent years, interest in Neoproterozoic glaciations has grown as their pivotal role in Earth system evolution has become increasingly clear. One of the main goals of the IGCP Project number 512 was to produce a synthesis of newly available information on Neoproterozoic successions worldwide similar in format to Hambrey & Harlands (1981) Earths pre Pleistocene Glacial Record. This Memoir therefore consists of a series of overview chapters followed by site-specific chapters. The overview chapters cover key topics including the history of research on Neoproterozoic glaciations, identification of glacial deposits, chemostratigraphic techniques and datasets, palaeomagnetism, biostratigraphy, geochronology and climate modelling. The site specific chapters for 60 successions worldwide include reviews of the history of research on these rocks and up-to-date syntheses of the structural framework, tectonic setting, palaeomagnetic and geochronological constraints, physical, biological, and chemical stratigraphy, and descriptions of the glaciogenic and associated strata, including economic deposits.

Dunes: Dynamics, Morphology, History by Andrew Warren

Dunes: Dynamics, Morphology, History
The field of investigation into dunes is one that has developed rapidly over recent years as a result of advanced technology and increased levels of understanding. The literature on this subject however, has failed to keep pace with these developments, and Dunes is the first book in over a decade to incorporate the latest research in what is a very active field.

Dunes discusses the shapes, sizes, patterns, distribution, history and care of wind-blown dunes. It covers all aspects of dunes, terrestrial and in the Solar System, and provides a comprehensive investigation of the process of sand movement, dune dynamics, dune patterns, dunes in deserts and on coasts, in the past and in the Quaternary, and the management of dunes.

Within the text, Warren discusses the range of skills now focused on dunes, giving consideration to mathematical modelling; improved instrumentation for the measurement of sand movement in the field and in the wind tunnel; the analysis of remotely-sensed images; dating techniques, especially those dependent on thermoluminescence; stratigraphy and pedology. The result is a complete and relevant overview of the very latest developments in dune studies.

Carbonate Reservoirs, Volume 67, Second Edition: Porosity and diagenesis in a sequence stratigraphic framework

Carbonate Reservoirs, Volume 67, Second Edition: Porosity and diagenesis in a sequence stratigraphic framework
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0444538313 | 392 pages | PDF | 71.75 MB

The 2nd Edition of Carbonate Reservoirs aims to educate graduate students and industry professionals on the complexities of porosity evolution in carbonate reservoirs. In the intervening 12 years since the first edition, there have been numerous studies of value published that need to be recognized and incorporated in the topics discussed. A chapter on the impact of global tectonics and biological evolution on the carbonate system has been added to emphasize the effects of global earth processes and the changing nature of life on earth through Phanerozoic time on all aspects of the carbonate system. The centerpiece of this chapter-and easily the most important synthesis of carbonate concepts developed since the 2001 edition-is the discussion of the CATT hypothesis, an integrated global database bringing together stratigraphy, tectonics, global climate, oceanic geochemistry, carbonate platform characteristics, and biologic evolution in a common time framework. Another new chapter concerns naturally fractured carbonates, a subject of increasing importance, given recent technological developments in 3D seismic, reservoir modeling, and reservoir production techniques.
