This comprehensive text and accompanying CD-ROM will provide the reader with an integrated overview of diagenesis and porosity evolution in carbonate petroleum reservoirs and ancient carbonate rock sequences.
The initial chapters of this volume provide an overview of the carbonate sedimentologic system and the application of sequence stratigraphic concepts to carbonate rock sequences. The nature of carbonate porosity and its control by diagenesis is explored. Porosity classification schemes are detailed, compared, and their utility examined. The nature and characteristics of diagenetic environments and tools for their recognition in the ancient record are specified.
The middle chapters of the book consist of a thorough examination of the major, surficial diagenetic environments, such as normal marine, evaporative marine and meteoric environments, emphasising porosity modifying processes illustrated by numerous case histories. There f

Dr. Clyde H. Moore received his BS degree in Geology from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge and his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Texas in Austin. He spent a number of years as a research geologist with Shell Development Company in Houston, Texas and Ventura, California. During this period he studied Cretaceous carbonate sequences in Texas, modern clastic coastal depositional environments along the Atlantic coast, and Tertiary clastic sequences in the marginal basins of the Pacific coast. He joined the geology faculty at Louisiana State University in 1966 and retired as Professor Emeritus in 1997. During his tenure at LSU his research interests and the work of his students spanned all aspects of carbonate geology from modern sediments to ancients rock sequences around the world. His main focus in his later years at LSU was the nature and evolution of porosity in carbonate reservoirs. This research was sponsored by an industrial associates program. At present he is a research professor at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. He is an active consultant and teaches industrial seminars for Oil and Gas Consultants Inc (OGCI). His seminars include Carbonate Reservoirs and Sequence Stratigraphy. He was a Distinguished Lecturer for AAPG and recently received the AAPG Distinguished Educator award. He resides in Lakewood, Colorado.

"...Coming from AAPG's recipient of the 2001 Distinguished Lecturer Award, the book is useful for exploration/production geologists, and is a welcome comprehensive reference, overviewing carbonate sequences and sediments in a sequence-stratigraphic framework. It could be profitably used in advanced carbonate courses and by graduate level students. The purchase is worth the price." --Journal of Sedimentary Research
"...This book is well-written and easy to read. There is a lot of information there but it is presented in an interesting way, with useful summaries. ...Clyde Moore is to be congratulated on writing a fine book that is a must for all carbonate and petroleum geologists and which comes with a CD-ROM that will be very useful indeed for graduate students and others to browse through while reading the book. --Organanic Geochemistry
"...This book is a major teaching resource on carbonate diagenesis and carbonate reservoirs from a scientist who has spent his professional life in this field." --Marine and Petroleum Geology
"...if you need a good overview of carbonate geology that will bring you up to date with some of the latest ideas, go and get yourself a copy of Carbonate Reservoirs Porosity Evolution and Diagenesis in a Sequence Stratigraphic Framework. There are already two copies in our office. Enough said. --Journal of Petroleum Geology
