9780127223605: Stratigraphic Systems: Origin and Application

The statigraphic record represents the history of processes and events that occurred at the surface of the earth. Presently, there are no textbooks on the market that integrate physical, chemical, and biological processes to predict stratigraphic patterns. Visher's authoritative Stratigraphic Systems fills this niche. It outlines the principle stratigraphic concepts for exploration of hydrocarvon accumulations, with more than 700 illustrations. Can be used as a primary textbook for an undergraduate course in stratigraphy and sedimentation.

* CD-ROM features expert systems software for identifying or verifying stratigraphic intervals
* Provides historical and paleogeographic context for observations
* Conveniently organizes stratigraphic systems into basinal frameworks
* Incorporates statistical probability analysis, yet is not mathematically demanding
* Stresses an analytical, rather than a descriptive, approach to predicting temporal and areal stratigraphic patterns
* Includes more than 700 figures and tables

Book Description:

Can be used as a primary textbook for an undergraduate course in stratigraphy and sedimentation.

From the Back Cover:

Stratigraphic Systems: Origin and Application is a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of stratigraphic analysis for students and professionals working in stratigraphy, sedimentology, petroleum geology, geophysical interpretation, and reservoir engineering. Visher has constructed a powerful framework for predicting the geometry of stratigraphic sequences and the areal variation of their physical, chemical, and biological attributes. Suitable as a primary text for undergraduate courses in sedimentology and stratigraphy.
