Computer simulation of stratigraphy
Simulation of stratigraphy coupled with sequence stratigraphic and backstripping analysis quantitatively defines the timing and magnitude of geologic events, including the history of sediment supply, tectonism and eustasy. ...
The Cenozoic tectonostratigraphic evolution of the Belize margin, the origin of the Belize barrier reef, and sequence stratigraphy of the late Quaternary mixed siliciclastic-carbonate system
The primary objectives of this study were to understand the origin of the Belize Barrier Reef and the sequence stratigraphy of the mixed siliciclastic-carbonate system. The data used consisted of 1,400 km of conventional ...
Response of the Texas coast to global change: Geologic versus historic timescales
The response of coastal systems to global change is currently not well understood. To understand current patterns and predict future trends, we establish a geologic record of coastal change along the Gulf of Mexico coast. A ...
Tectonic and eustatic controls on the evolution of the Maldive carbonate platform
The Maldive Archipelago in the equatorial Indian Ocean is only the uppermost part of a more than 3-km thick carbonate platform. The Maldive platform contains a 50 Ma-long sedimentation record and has a relatively simple ...
Accumulation of gas hydrates in marine sediments
Generalized numerical models for simulating gas hydrate and free gas accumulation in marine sediments have been developed. These models include several physical processes such as phase equilibrium of gas hydrates, multiphase ...
Sedimentary facies and evolution of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas shelf
Examination of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas continental shelf can help refine current models aimed at understanding how coastal environments respond to a variety of forcing mechanisms ...
