Description

AAPG Memoir 83 Co-published by AAPG and SEPM (SEPM Special Publication 78). CD-Rom version.

Stemming from presentations given at the SEPM- and IAS-sponsored research conference held in May 2000, this volume provides new material and global insight into Permo-Carboniferous geology.

Within the evolving Permo-Carboniferous "landscape," a wide diversity of carbonate platforms and reefs flourished. They ranged in size from small mounds to mega-platforms, some of which are important mineral and petroleum reservoirs. It is the diversity which Permo-Carboniferous rocks offer that has led to their intensive study by researchers from industry and academia around the globe.

The papers in Permo-Carboniferous Carbonate Platforms and Reefs are grouped into these three major themes: Platform Architecture and Sequence Stratigraphy • Reefs, Mounds, and Paleoenvironments • Diagenesis and Reservoir Characterization
