Deep-Water Sedimentation in the Alpine Basin of SE France by P. Joseph, S. A. Lomas

By P. Joseph, S. A. Lomas

The Gr??s d'Annot Formation of SE France constitutes a vintage and impressive instance of a sand-rich turbidite process managed by way of synsedimentary tectonics, and has usually been used as an outcrop analogue for deep-water hydrocarbon reservoirs. during the last 10 years, examine efforts through varied educational and commercial groups have resulted in vital reappraisals of winning rules at the Gr??s d'Annot, relatively at the nature and controlling elements of the depositional approaches, the small-scale structure and series association of the deposits, the tectonic regime of the basin and its influence on palaeogeography, and the interplay among sediment gravity flows and basin-floor topography. This quantity deals a multidisciplinary assessment and attracts up the 'state-of-the-art' of medical wisdom in this influential turbidite method. Complementary points are lined, from structural geology, sedimentology and series stratigraphy, to modelling of sedimentary tactics and architectures, geochemistry, reservoir characterization, seismic modelling and makes use of as analogues for deep-marine hydrocarbon fields. This e-book should be of use to either educational researchers (geologists and geophysicists) and execs facing the characterization and modelling of deepwater sediments. additionally to be had: Tectonic facets of the Alpine-Dinaride-Carpathian process - distinct book no 298 - ISBN 1862392528 Subsurface Sediment Mobilization (Geological Society exact e-book) - ISBN 1862391416 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the earth, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes quite a lot of top quality peer-reviewed titles for teachers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign recognition for the standard of its work.The many components within which we submit in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology courses

The only stable part was the interpretation of'granule bars' as resulting from density surges. The wide diversity of the Gres d'Annot, their vast dimensions, and their many unanswered questions justify the presence of several teams from different organizations working with different approaches. Bouma is very thankful for the education he received from Kuenen, Doeglas, Shepard and all other teachers. He also thanks the many colleagues and students he had the pleasure of meeting and/or working with.

Even the much-increased distance from the Maritime Alps was not to end my association with the Gres d'Annot. On the contrary, I was able to mine the riches of these sandstones for more than two decades (citations by the author and his colleagues in the references) and, during this period, frequently taught field courses on the Gres d'Annot in the Maritime Alps for the Institut Frangais du Petrole. The petroleum industry had become increasingly interested in the hydrocarbon potential of such deposits.
