Download Carbonate Cementation in Sandstones: Distribution Patterns by Sadoon Morad PDF

By Sadoon Morad

Carbonate cements are quite common and ample in clastic sequences. They profoundly impact the standard of hydrocarbon reservoirs and provide very important info on palaeoenvironments and the chemical composition and circulation styles of fluids in sedimentary basins. regardless of this value, their distribution styles in time and house and their geochemical evolution aren't but deeply explored and elucidated. This exact booklet includes 21 assessment papers and case reports on carbonate cementation in clastic sequences written by means of invited experts at the topic. those papers current a large and deep assurance that improve our wisdom approximately carbonate cementation in quite a few clastic depositional environments, tectonic settings and burial histories. The booklet may be of specific curiosity to researchers, petroleum geologists and academics and scholars on the postgraduate point. when you are a member of the foreign organization of Sedimentologists, for getting information, please see:
