Applied Micropalaeontology by Simon D. Houghton (auth.), David Graham Jenkins (eds.)

By Simon D. Houghton (auth.), David Graham Jenkins (eds.)

Seven unique case-studies are offered during this quantity, each one describing the appliance of micropaleontology and palynology in utilized geology: (1) a learn of the fashionable distribution of coccolith sedimentation within the North Sea and its capability for destiny software in basin research; (2) ostracods are proven to be reliable paleoenvironmental signs within the early Cretaceous and Tertiary; (3) a biogenic fuel seep within the North Sea is proven to be marked via diagnostic benthonic foraminifera; (4) within the North Sea hydrocarbon exploration, built-in stories of micropaleontology have supplied useful information; (5) palynofacies research are proven to be important in making a choice on depositional occasions and hydrocarbon resource rock power; (6) the applying of paleontology and sedimentology to series stratigraphy is established within the early Cretaceous; and (7) the applying of micropaleontology is proven to be a necessary instrument in either engineering and financial geology. so much chapters were ready via earth scientists from industry.
The research of microfossils awarded during this booklet presents precious info for stratigraphers, petroleum geologists and for engineers and fiscal geologists operating in hydrocarbon exploration and basin analysis.

Dominance values of the two most abundant species are always high throughout marginal environments (>80%) and may be regarded as one of the most reliable indicators of such an environment. RECENT COCCOLITH SEDIMENTATION PATTERNS 21 Honjo (1977) considered that the dominance of placolith-bearing coccolithophorids in living floras was characteristic of marginal seas. 5% for the northern North Sea (Houghton, 1986).
