Carbonate Mud-Mounds: Their Origin and Evolution (Special Publication 23 of the IAS)
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis is the first book to investigate the structure, origin and evolution of carbonate mud-mounds. Mud-mounds are accumulations of biogenic carbonate sediment that are common in the geological record, and economically important as they host lead zinc mineralization and oil and gas. The book reviews, for the first time, the different mechanisms of mud-mound formation and examines in detail the major changes in mud-mound type and occurrence through geological time. The major part of the book contains case studies of mud-mounds from the Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic. The coverage is global and truly international, with 32 authors from 10 countries.
The first volume to deal with the structure, formation and evolution of mud-mounds.
Copiously illustrated, with nine colour plates.
