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. ...
Sequence stratigraphy of the Middle to Upper Jurassic, Viking Graben area, North Sea
The Middle to Upper Jurassic in the Viking Graben area was deposited during an overall transgression. Tectonics, eustasy, sediment supply and sediment source area control facies distribution. The Lower Toarcian to the base ...
Origin and stratigraphic evolution of the Maldives (central Indian Ocean)
The Maldive Ridge is a volcanic lineament overlain by locally 3.3 km of mostly shallow-water carbonate sediments. The Maldive basement appears on seismic profiles as a volcanic plateau generated during two distinct eruptive ...
Tectonic evolution of the Gibraltar Arc
The Betic Cordillera of Spain and the Moroccan Rif constitute the northern and southern branches of the Gibraltar Arc, which is the western limit of the Alpine-Mediterranean system. The frontal units (i.e. the Guadalquivir ...
Organization and imaging of three-dimensional seismic reflection data before stack
Pre-stack imaging of 3D seismic reflection data is at present a major challenge of seismic data processing. The main difficulty arises because of the limited power of today's computers. Manipulating volumes of 3D multi-fold ...
The growth of fractures in the Earth
Fracture growth under compressive loading is studied using the maximum strain energy release rate criterion by means of both the finite element and the boundary element methods. Although this approach is computationally ...
