    ABSTRACT A process‐based facies model for asymmetric wave‐influenced deltas predicts significant river‐borne muds with potentially lower quality reservoir facies in prodelta and downdrift areas, and better quality sand in updrift areas. Many ancient barrier‐lagoon systems and ‘offshore bars’ may be better reinterpreted as components of large‐scale asymmetric wave‐influenced Cited by: The GeoLegends Interview Series consists of a set of 86 video interviews with 53 key geoscientists who made game-changing discoveries, significant scientific contributions that were adopted by the greater geo-community, or people who made significant contributions in building companies or service to the profession. The interviews highlight the thought processes .

    The region around Sedona AZ is geologically unique - and in some respects even exciting, for it is still experiencing uplift. If you sit real still and hold your breath, you might feel it! The rate of uplift amounts to a few millimeters a year, or about an inch over the course of a human lifetime – but in geological time, this is considered some pretty swift movement. Dark shiny coating consisting of iron and manganese oxides and wind-delivered clay, desert varnish is a useful dating tool Characteristic desert surfaces: ergs, regs, and Hamadas: Hamada Barren bedrock, barren surface of consolidated material, exposed bedrock or cemented sedimentary material, regs and Hamadas extremely flat.

By Kenneth William Glennie book Shell Exploration and Desert sedimentary environments, Shell Mex House, Strand, London (Great Britain) (Received October 8, ) ABSTRACT Glennie, K.W.,Cited by:   Sedimentary Environments is one of the most distinguished and influential textbooks in the earth sciences published in the last 20 years.

The first and second editions both won universal praise and became classic works in sedimentology. Since the publication of the last edition, the study of sedimentary environments and facies has made great strides, with major 4/5(1).

Very little was known about sedimentary processes in this environment, so off I went to study them.” Ken’s travels took him first in Libya, followed by India, the Trucial States (now known as the United Arab Emirates) and Oman, culminating in in his book ‘Desert Sedimentary Environments’, which is still a classic on the subject.

Sedimentary Sequences A sequence is a vertical succession of sedimentary structures that represents a change in depositional conditions over a period of time. Virtually every depositional environment can be distinguished by its characteristic sequence of File Size: KB.

Table shows a fairly detailed list of depositional environments. There are various problems with this list: • There’s lots of overlap among the different environments. • It’s still not a complete list. • Some of the environments on the list have been much more common and important in the sedimentary record than others.

Coastal environments may be in excess of a hundred meters deep (fjords) or may extend several meters above sea level in the form of dunes. Some coastal environments are well protected and are not subjected to high physical energy except for occasional storms, whereas beaches and tidal inlets are continuously modified by waves and currents.

During his distinguished year career with Shell, (which ended in ) Ken Glennie straddled the world. He began, inin New Zealand, working on the Tertiary of the North Island.

Renowned sedimentologist with a sharp intellect and passion for geology Ken left a positive footprint wherever he trod and his enthusiasm for the science of geology will not be forgotten. A modest, friendly man, Ken was easy company and his characteristically relaxed manner belied his sharp intellect and passion for geology.

‘The father of Oman’s geology’ Professor Kenneth W. Glennie. Rocks are all around us. They make up the backbones of hills and mountains and the foundations of plains and valleys. Beneath the soil you walk on and the deep layers of soft mud that cover the ocean basins is a basement of hard rock and minerals.
