Atlas of Trace Fossils in Well Core: Appearance, Taxonomy by Dirk Knaust

By Dirk Knaust

This ebook presents readers with a well-balanced combination of high quality pictures, figures and accompanying texts at the identity of hint fossils, either in middle and in outcrop. Ichnological facts has turn into more and more very important in sedimentological and paleoenvironmental interpretations, not just within the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons but in addition within the characterization of aquifers and in clinical drilling.
Following an advent to the research of hint fossils in center and an overview of ichnological fundamentals, ideas and ideas, the e-book offers exact descriptions and interpretations of 39 hint fossils (ichnogenera) and linked beneficial properties (such as bioturbate texture, plant roots and their lines, borings and pseudo-trace fossils) ordinarily encountered in good cores and in outcrop. The hint fossils are highlighted via their expression in good cores and illustrated with conscientiously ready, attention-grabbing center images. This designated info is complemented via examples of hint fossils in outcrop, in addition to correct key figures from the literature.
Each description is gifted in a constant demeanour, mentioning the ichnogenus identify and writer within the identify, by way of sections at the morphology and dimension, ichnotaxonomy, substrate, visual appeal in center, comparable hint fossils, manufacturers, ethology, depositional surroundings, ichnofacies, age, and reservoir caliber. an intensive record of references in step with bankruptcy for extra analyzing rounds out the booklet, that's in response to the author’s non-stop paintings with hint fossils in center over the last decades.
