Derived from the 1991 examine Symposium on Carbonate series Stratigraphy, the authors have introduced jointly in a single quantity a consultant sampling of pivotal examine during this vital subject. Its 3 sections describe (1) series innovations and sedimentologic ideas, (2) seismic series case experiences regarding seismic and outcrop interpretations, and (3) examples of high-frequency, meter-scale cycle deposition and stacking patterns.American organization Of Petroleum Engineers (AAPG)Founded in 1917, we're the world's biggest specialist geological society, with over 30,000 members.We are a pillar of the world-wide clinical group. Our books foster clinical examine, boost the technological know-how of geology and advertise the simplest use of petroleum extraction & processing expertise and practice.Some of the parts we submit in include:GISPetroleum EngineeringWell Log AnalysisGeological ModelingCarbonate PetrologySeismic ImagingReservoir CharacterizationRegional Petroleum research
