AAPG Memoir 93

The phenomenon of rocks moving under their own means has always fascinated both scientists and nonscientists alike. The 2006 AAPG Hedberg Conference on Mobile Shale Basins was held in response to a need to gather industry and academic communities in a common forum to address the very existence of mobile shales. Stimulating and informative discussions at that Conference led to this special volume on shale tectonics.

AAPG Memoir 93 documents shale tectonics from a variety of basins around the world, including the southern Beaufort Sea; the Krishna-Godavari Basin, India; eastern offshore Trinidad; offshore Brunei; and along the westernmost portion of the Mediterranean Sea. The book also provides information on the petrographic framework, behavior, geometries, and geodynamic models of shales.

Publication of this Memoir coincides with a growing interest in shales as hydrocarbon reservoirs, and will add to the body of literature that significantly addresses both extrusive and intrusive shales.

CD-ROM included. *NOTE TO THE READER: Chapters 1, 3, and 8 contain references to animations. These animations can be found on the CD located in the inside back cover of this book. In addition, all chapters of the book can be found on that CD, and where animations are referred to in Chapters 1, 3, and 8, there are direct links to those animations within the chapter .pdf file on the CD.
