Miocene Stratigraphy by A. Montanari


Original Title: Miocene Stratigraphy

Integrated stratigraphy is essential for ⧫ detailed paleoecologic studies of critical intervals in Earth history ⧫ the calibration of the time scale for global use ⧫ the establishment of Global Stratotype Sections and Points (GSSPs) for the definition of chronostratigraphic boundaries. This book constitutes an excellent and probably unique example of how interdisciplinary stratigraphic and geochronologic studies are approached with modern methodologies and techniques. It contains numerous unpublished, accurate radioisotopic dates of volcano-sedimentary layers interbedded in fossiliferous marine and continental Miocene sequences representing Mediterranean and Pacific environments. New, extremely detailed paleontologic data which constitute the basis for an accurate definition of the Miocene biostratigraphy, and the study of the ecologic evolution of Miocene marine environments are also included. The chapters are complimented by black-and-white photographs, graphic figures, and tables. Stratigraphers, paleontologists and sedimentologists plus geologists working in oil companies will certainly find this work of interest.

Sequence Stratigraphy Of The Lower Miocene Moghra Formation In The Qattara Depression North Western Desert Egypt by Safiya M. Hassan


Original Title: Sequence Stratigraphy Of The Lower Miocene Moghra Formation In The Qattara Depression North Western Desert Egypt

The Qattara Depression is part of the Northwestern Desert in Egypt and is home to the second lowest point in Africa at -133 meters below sea level. Therefore, before any projects can be carried out in this area, we must first understand the geology of the land. The present study deals with the high-resolution sequence stratigraphic analysis of the Lower Miocene Moghra Formation outcrops in the Qattara Depression Region. The literature on the sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of the Moghra Formation has been sparse to date, despite some excellent work over the years by academic and petroleum workers. Moreover, the area studied is within what was once a front-line of World War II, where mine fields and war relics are scattered and cover wide reaches. This has resulted in limited geologic mapping in the past. Thus, great attention is paid in this study to establishing a robust sedimentology and high-resolution sequence stratigraphic framework for the Lower Miocene Moghra Formation. Included are works based on outcrops and, most importantly, new sedimentological and chronostratigraphic information not previously available.

Magnetic Stratigraphy by Meil D. Opdyke


Original Title: Magnetic Stratigraphy

Magnetic Stratigraphy is the most comprehensive book written in the English language on the subject of magnetic polarity stratigraphy and time scales. This volume presents the entirety of the known geomagneticrecord, which now extends back about 300 million years. The book includes the results of current research on sea floor spreading, magnetic stratigraphy of the Pliocene and Pleistocene, and postulations on the Paleozoic. Also included are both historicalbackground and applications of magnetostratigraphy. Individual chapters on correlation are presented, using changes in magnetic properties and secular variation. Key Features * Discusses pioneering work in the use of marine sediments to investigate the Earths magnetic field * Serves as a guide for students wishing to begin studies in magnetostratigraphy * Provides a comprehensive guide to magnetic polarity stratigraphy including up-to-date geomagnetic polarity time scales * Correlates magnetic stratigraphics from marine and non-marine Cenozoic sequences * Details reversal history of the magnetic field for the last 350 million years * Discusses correlation using magnetic dipole intensity changes * Up-to-date correlation of biostratigraphy with magnetic stratigraphy through the late Jurassic

Plankton Stratigraphy Volume 1 Planktic Foraminifera Calcareous Nannofossils And Calpionellids by Hans M. Bolli


Original Title: Plankton Stratigraphy Volume 1 Planktic Foraminifera Calcareous Nannofossils And Calpionellids

This comprehensive synthesis of our knowledge of the biostratigraphy of marine plankton is the work of an international team of eighteen authors. It covers all the major fossil groups that can be used to date sediments and rocks in the time interval Late Mesozoic to Holocene. Altogether more than 3200 taxa are considered, almost all of which are illustrated and depicted on range charts, making the book a valuable work of reference in the earth sciences. For ease of reference by specialists interested in either calcareous or non-calcareous microfossils, the original work is now divided into two independent volumes. Volume I covers the calcareous microfossils and includes planktic foraminifers, calcareous nannofossils and calpionellids.

Impact Stratigraphy by Alessandro Montanari


Original Title: Impact Stratigraphy

This book provides a general introduction to impact stratigraphy, with emphasis on the recognition of distal impact ejecta in the field, by focusing on the impactoclastic layers of the Umbria-Marche sequence in Central Italy, with an almost perfect stratigraphic record over the last 200 Million years. A general introduction to impact cratering and a discussion of distal ejecta and impact layers around the world is followed by a detailed description of the record of the impact of extraterrestrial bodies in sediments of the Umbria-Marche Apennines. The volume is of interest to a diverse audience in the geological and planetary sciences, ranging from (upper) undergraduate to research level. This book can also be used by students and researchers as a field guide to some of the most important Italian impact layers.

Post Miocene Stratigraphy And Morphology Inner Coastal Plain Southeastern Virginia by Nicholas K. Coch


Original Title: Post Miocene Stratigraphy And Morphology Inner Coastal Plain Southeastern Virginia

Detailed stratigraphic study of an area (540 square miles) in the Inner Coastal Plain (landward half) of southeastern Virginia showed that older interpretations of stratigraphic relationships and geologic history based on the terraceformation concept are in error. Study of more than 600 exposures and borings showed that the stratigraphic units are not simple glacialeustatic marine terrace formations which overlie Miocene sediments and areally restricted to one terrace; rather they are composed of both marine and non-marine formations which can be further subdivided into mappable facies underlying several terraces. The term terrace is not used in this study because of its genetic connotation. Purely descriptive terms such as flat, plain and scarp are used to describe morphologic features. (Author).
