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, every one describing the applying of micropaleontology and palynology in utilized geology: (1) a research of the trendy distribution of coccolith sedimentation within the North Sea and its power for destiny program in basin research; (2) ostracods are proven to be solid paleoenvironmental signs within the early Cretaceous and Tertiary; (3) a biogenic fuel seep within the North Sea is proven to be marked by means of diagnostic benthonic foraminifera; (4) within the North Sea hydrocarbon exploration, built-in reports of micropaleontology have supplied valuable info; (5) palynofacies research are proven to be important in picking depositional occasions and hydrocarbon resource rock strength; (6) the applying of paleontology and sedimentology to series stratigraphy is verified within the early Cretaceous; and (7) the appliance of micropaleontology is proven to be an important device in either engineering and fiscal geology. such a lot chapters were ready through earth scientists from industry.
The examine of microfossils awarded during this ebook presents precious info for stratigraphers, petroleum geologists and for engineers and financial geologists operating in hydrocarbon exploration and basin analysis.

1992). 6 Conclusions Coccolith abundance and species diversity in the North Sea sediments are controlled by the seasonal supply of coccolithophorids from Atlantic water to the basin, and by the degree of tidal influence in the overlying water column. High diversity assemblages are deposited by seasonally-stratified Atlantic water. Recent coccoliths are either very rare or absent in sediments underlying the tidally mixed water column of the southern North Sea. The abundance of E. huxleyi (>90 %) in the Recent sediments of the North Sea again emphasizes the dominance of the species in European marginal sea coccolith assemblages and in the Atlantic Ocean in general.
