Characterizing transitional flow deposits in the proximal Brushy Canyon Formation, Texas
Transitional flow deposits are identified, characterized, and placed in a stratigraphic context in the proximal Brushy Canyon Formation, Guadalupe Mountains, Texas. Transitional flows are sand-laden, mud-rich sediment ...
Sedimentology and reservoir characterization of the Upper Pennsylvanian Cline Shale, Midland Basin, Texas
The Cline Shale, an organic rich mudrock comprising the Canyon and Cisco Groups in the Midland Basin, has recently become an exploration target and production interval. The Cline is a basin-restricted facies specific to ...
The combined effects of river-flood and tidal processes on the stratigraphy, ichnology, and stratal architecture of the Cretaceous (Campanian) Loyd Delta near Rangely, Colorado U.S.A.
The Campanian Loyd Sandstone (Loyd) has been identified in outcrops in the Piceance Basin within strata above the Castlegate Sandstone near Rangely, CO. The Loyd preserves sedimentary structures, facies, sandbody/shale ...
Carbonate platform demise and recovery at the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event : high-resolution data from the Adriatic Carbonate Platform
The sedimentological, stratigraphic, and geochemical signature of the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (OAE) on the Bahamian-style, Adriatic Carbonate Platform of Southern Europe is examined here. New stratigraphic sections ...
Tectonic and sea level controls on the back-stepping early miocene carbonate platforms: Adana Basin, Turkey
The Karaisali complex exposes Miocene carbonate platforms that developed on a tectonically controlled, rugged antecedent topography during an ice-house system. The factors affecting platform initiation, architecture, facies ...
Lithofacies, depositional environment, and stratigraphic architecture of the deep-water hybrid mudrock system of the Pennsylvanian (Desmoinesian) Cherokee Group, Anadarko Basin, Texas Panhandle
The Cherokee Group in the western Anadarko Basin, northeastern Texas Panhandle, is a Desmoinesian hybrid system of mudrocks interbedded with sandstones and carbonates in a deep- water foreland basin that had poor circulation ...
