Automatic characterization of the spatial statistics of topography using geostatistical methods
An automatic geostatistical method of analyzing spatial characteristics of topography is presented. Anisotropy in spatial continuity is modeled by estimating the range of the directional semivariograms. Spatial characteristics ...
Subduction zone thermal models: Numerical modeling and data analysis
Temperature distribution in subduction zones is a key factor in understanding magma generation, earthquake occurrence, metamorphic reactions, and geochemical element recycling. In this thesis, I have developed a new numerical ...
An investigation into sequence stratigraphic controversy in the central Gulf Coastal Plain (tertiary)
Outcrop studies of Eocene-Oligocene depositional sequences exposed in the Coastal Plain of Alabama and Mississippi disagree on the sea level history recorded across several stratigraphic intervals. The placement of ...
Seismic characterization of a gas hydrate system in the Gulf of Mexico: A novel approach for evaluating high-resolution wide-aperture data
Gas hydrates were discovered in a mud diapir in the leased block Mississippi Canyon 798 - Gulf of Mexico, through piston coring. Subsequently, a seismic experiment was set up to investigate the dynamics behind the hydrate ...
A sequence stratigraphic analysis of Campanian to middle Miocene sediments of the Sable Island area: Offshore Nova Scotia, eastern Canada
The continental shelf offshore Nova Scotia is within a passive margin setting and is an excellent area to study the sequence stratigraphy of late Cretaceous and Tertiary sediments. Hydrocarbon exploration offshore Nova ...
