Carbonate Cementation in Sandstones: Distribution Patterns by Sadoon Morad

By Sadoon Morad

Carbonate cements are quite common and plentiful in clastic sequences. They profoundly impression the standard of hydrocarbon reservoirs and provide vital info on palaeoenvironments and the chemical composition and stream styles of fluids in sedimentary basins. regardless of this significance, their distribution styles in time and area and their geochemical evolution usually are not but deeply explored and elucidated. This exact booklet comprises 21 evaluation papers and case stories on carbonate cementation in clastic sequences written by way of invited experts at the topic. those papers current a large and deep assurance that improve our wisdom approximately carbonate cementation in numerous clastic depositional environments, tectonic settings and burial histories. The ebook can be of unique curiosity to researchers, petroleum geologists and academics and scholars on the postgraduate point. while you are a member of the foreign organization of Sedimentologists, for getting information, please see:
