Basin analysis may include aspects of magnetostratigraphy, seismic stratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, and radiometric age dating, as well as more conventional stratigraphic and petrologic analysis, including provenance study. Melvin continues to say that a large and appropriate reservoir for evaporites is associated with the presence of petroleum deposits as shown in the diagram figure.1.0. Except for some localized contact metamorphism adjacent to the larger igneous intrusions, only very low grade metamorphic rocks are present in the state.

Sedimentary rocks produced in this manner are called biochemical. Owing to the large number of criteria observed during microfacies analysis, statistical methods are commonly used to test the validity of the data and to reduce the data to a more manageable level that can be used in environmental interpretation.

The tectonic provenance of any sandstone can presumably be interpreted simply by reference to these plots. On the other hand, the laminae in some shales and most laminae in sandstones probably formed by traction transport mechanisms. On the other hand, several investigators have proposed a deeper, subsurface origin for some dolomites on the basis of petrographic, geochemical, or other evidence. An otherwise aphanitic volcanic rock containing phenocrysts is called a porphyry; the fine-grained component is called the groundmass.

Examples of organic sedimentary rocks are coal and limestone. Weathering is any process in which rocks are broken down into smaller pieces. Fine-grained sediments were deposited later. Little compaction occurred because of the size of the angular sediments. Other common cements are chlorite, clay minerals, iron oxides, and pyrite. This lake was the site of deposition of fine grained sediments or muds, but periodically rivers filled into this lake.

These agents reduce the size of the particles, sort them by size, and then deposit them in new locations. This change is generally attributed to a dramatic rise in atmospheric oxygen levels in late Precambrian time, presumably resulting in oxygen enrichment of the anoxic bottom layer, thereby dramatically reducing iron solubility in bottom water. This changed the understanding of geologic time. Schist is a course grained metamorphic rock. Gneiss is a medium to course grained metamorphic rock.

There is a lot of room for interpretation with any prospect (that’s what makes it fun). In other words, if the “noise” related to the transport and deposition of our single sand grain overpowers the signal from the external forcing (e.g., climatic fluctuation) can we even detect it? On the other hand, much authigenic clay is 4.2 Particle composition 131 Figure 4.9 Photomicrograph of coarse clay-mineral cement with drusy texture (arrows) filling pore space among framework grains. On land it often forms where the crust is splitting apart.

This sample contains large crystals of garnet. Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 37,1339-1351. When conglomerates are present in a stratigraphic section, however, they commonly provide more-reliable provenance interpretation than do sandstones. Origin Oil shales form in environments where organic matter is abundant and anaerobic or reducing conditions prevent oxidation and total bacterial decomposition.

Now these are all pretty basic things that we read when learning about the layers of the Earth, but what does it really mean? Telogenesis may, therefore, modify previously formed diagenetic mineral assemblages, or it may produce changes in original detrital mineral assemblages that escaped modification during eogenesis and mesogenesis.

Short system deposits consist of deep basin, dark, organic-rich mudstones, submarine fan turbidites (wacke sandstones and mudstones), gravel beach lithic to feldspathic conglomerates, and alluvial fan lithic to feldspathic breccias and conglomerates; long system sediments are comprised of wave- or tide-dominated shelf mudstones, beach and nearshore quartz sandstones, and meandering river feldspathic wacke sandstones. This type of sedimentary formation is called cementation.
