Resolving the nanoscale mechanisms of calcite growth and dissolution from nonstoichiometric and microbial solutions
The relative rates of calcite (CaCO3) precipitation and dissolution largely determine the preservation and subsequent accumulation of carbonate in the geologic record and are fundamental parameters for predicting the fate ...
Tectonic and thermal history of the western Serrania del Interior foreland fold and thrust belt and Guarico Basin, north central Venezuela: Implications of new apatite fission track analysis and seismic interpretation
Structural analysis, interpretation of seismic reflection lines, and apatite fission-track analysis in the Western Serrania del Interior fold and thrust belt and in the Guarico basin of north-central Venezuela indicate ...
Oblique collision and accretion of the Netherlands Leeward Antilles island arc: A structural analysis of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary zone
The Netherlands Leeward Antilles volcanic island arc is an ideal natural laboratory to study the evolution of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary. The Leeward Antilles islands (Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire) are ...
Late Quaternary sediment dispersal and accumulation on slopes of the Great Barrier Reef mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional system, Gulf of Papua, Papua New Guinea and North Queensland Margin, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) margin, located on the continental margin between Papua New Guinea and northeast Australia, is the largest extant example of a tropical mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional system. It is ...
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 ...
