The Lower to Middle Miocene Cayman Formation on Grand Cayman, which is part of the Bluff Group, is at least 130 m thick. The mostly dolomitized Cayman Formation is herein divided into a ‘limestone member’ and ‘dolostone member’ as limestone is found in the formation in the central part of Grand...
Ediacaran iron formations and carbonates from Uruguay: palaeoceanographic, palaeoclimatic and palaeobiologic implicationsDownload
The Ediacaran in Uruguay preserves a unique record of deposits generated during the assembly of the palaeocontinent Gondwana and concurrent with major changes in the atmosphere and oceans, and the rise of animal life. Recent studies have suggested that the deep oceans remained anoxic and highly...
Ichnology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and trace fossil-permeability relationships in the Upper Cretaceous Medicine Hat Member, Medicine Hat gas field, southeast Alberta, CanadaDownload
The Upper Cretaceous Medicine Hat Member (Niobrara Formation) in western Canada contains abundant reserves of biogenic natural gas. In the Medicine Hat gas field area of southeast Alberta, nineteen cored intervals were examined and classified based on primary physical and biogenic sedimentary...
Comprehensive, in-situ study of naturally occurring creep in ice-rich permafrost soil on a steep slope on the Great Bear River. A detailed surficial geology mapping along the Great Bear River was carried out in order to determine the most suitable field site. Coincidentally, the slope is situated...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
Paleoceanographic significance of the Neoproterozoic Polanco Limestones Formation (Uruguay): stratigraphy, isotopic geochemistry and ageDownload
Carbon and Strontium isotope data for marine carbonates can provide a detailed record of isotopic variations in seawater through time and have proven to be a valuable tool for interpreting biogeochemical events and correlating Neoproterozoic sedimentary successions worldwide. The Neoproterozoic...
Paleodepositional Environments and Stratigraphic Framework for the Lower Cretaceous Bluesky Formation and Related Strata in the Peace River Oil Sands Deposit of AlbertaDownload
The Early Cretaceous Bluesky Formation in the Peace River oil sands area of west-central Alberta, Canada hosts significant bitumen resources. This work is part of an ongoing endeavour by researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to develop paleodepositional and sequence stratigraphic...
Sedimentological and Ichnological Dynamics of the Early Cambrian Mount Clark Formation, Northwest Territories, CanadaDownload
The early Cambrian Mount Clark Formation of the Northwest Territories comprises marginal marine to marine siliciclastic sediments deposited in an incipient rift basin on the margin of Laurentia. Within core and outcrop datasets the preserved record of sedimentation represents complex and highly...
Sedimentology and stratigraphy of the Granite Wash: Contact Rapids and Keg River Sandstone (Red Earth area)Download
The Granite Wash is comprised of diachronous, Cambrian to Devonian sandstone deposits, which include the Devonian Contact Rapids and Keg River sandstones of which this study will focus. Prolific oil production from the Granite Wash has fueled exploration since the 1950s and as a result...
Sedimentology, diagenesis, and dolomitization of the Brac Formation (Lower Oligocene), Cayman Brac, British West IndiesDownload
The Oligocene Brac Formation is the oldest part of the Bluff Group that is exposed on Cayman Brac. Sediments of the Brac Formation were deposited on a small, open bank in shallow marine waters. Today, the formation is composed of limestone, finely crystalline dolostone, and coarsely crystalline...
