Microfacies of Carbonate Rocks: Analysis, Interpretation and by Erik Flügel

By Erik Flügel


The publication presents a synthesis of the tools utilized in microfacies research, the possibility of microfacies in comparing depositional environments and diagenetic background, and the applying of microfacies information within the learn of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs and the provenance of archaeological fabrics. the 1st a part of the booklet (Microfacies research) offers with box and laboratory tools; the outline and value of microfacies info; quantitative microfacies research; diagenetic approaches and diagenetic items; universal textural limestone classifications and particular classifications for reef limestones, non-marine carbonates, recrystallized limestones and combined carbonate-siliciclastic rocks; organic controls of carbonate sedimentation; and fossils in skinny part. the second one half (Microfacies Interpretation) is targeted at the tools of constructing of microfacies kinds; diagonsotic standards of palaeoenvironmental conditons and methods; the significance of built-in facies research together with mineralogical and geochemical information; the definition of depositional facies versions, facies zones and conventional microfacies varieties, and the popularity of depositional constraints influencing cyclic carbonates, reef limestones, cold-water carbonates, vent and seep carbonates and combined carbonate-siliciclastic rocks. The final bankruptcy bargains with secular diversifications of facies beneficial properties. The 3rd a part of the ebook (Practical Use of Microfacies) underlines the facies controls of reservoir and host rocks, the significance of microfacies and diagenesis for figuring out technological houses of carbonate rocks and the destruction and conservation of carbonate items, and discusses the potential for microfacies for archaeometrical reviews. approximately 230 instructive plates (30 in color)showing thin-section pictures with targeted motives shape a important a part of the content material.

Mine Safety: A Modern Approach

The excessive variety of deadly injuries within the mining makes mine defense a tremendous factor in the course of the global. the dangers to existence are common, starting from airborne dirt and dust explosions and the cave in of mine stopes to flooding and basic mechanical mistakes. Mine security combines certain details on defense in mining with tools and arithmetic that may be used to maintain human lifestyles.

Chemistry, Process Design, and Safety for the Nitration Industry

This is often the 3rd ACS Symposium sequence publication facing nitration, the 1st having been released in 1976 and 1996. the character of this 2013 book displays the adjustments world wide in technique security administration, and geographies of analysis and production. The contributions to this e-book have been first awarded on the 243rd ACS nationwide assembly in San Diego, California in March of 2012, within the commercial and Chemical Engineering department.

Stromatolitic travertine~exhibit alternating sparry and micritic laminae which are interpreted in terms of seasonality (Chafetz et al. 1991), climatic changes as well as changes in microbial and algal growth and sedimentation (Monty 1976). Travertines and tufa are often associated with higher plants (Pentecost 1990), but the ability of macrophytes to induce the precipitation of carbonate during photosynthesis is regarded as controversial.
