"This volume provides new insights of the Michigan Basin to both academic and applied geoscientists; it includes papers that discuss various aspects of the sedimentology and stratigraphy of key units within the basin, as well as papers that analyze the diverse distribution of natural resources present in this basin"-- Provided by publisher.
"The Michigan Basin is a classic intracratonic basin that has played a significant role in the fundamental understanding of geological processes in such basins, and has been an important resource for oil and gas, economic minerals, groundwater, and coal. Despite the classic nature of the Michigan Basin, there has not been a "special volume" dedicated to the basin in nearly 25 years. Since that time, new advancements in the geological sciences, particularly the utilization of high-resolution sequence stratigraphy and three-dimensional geostatistical modeling, have led to a new and more comprehensive understanding of the Paleozoic sedimentary packages of the Michigan Basin. This volume provides significant new insights of the Michigan Basin to both academic and applied geoscientists; it includes papers that discuss various aspects of the sedimentology and stratigraphy of key units within the basin, as well as papers that analyze the diverse distribution of natural resources present in this basin." -- Publisher's description

"Following this discovery and further detrital-zircon studies of Mesozoic strata on the Colorado Plateau, Dr. Dickinson began preparing this volume in order to identify key aspects of the sedimentary and tectonic history of Mesozoic strata of the Colorado Plateau and directly adjacent areas. He divided the strata into seven depositional systems"--Provided by publisher.
"William R. Dickinson (1931-2015) formally retired in 1991, but he didn't stop working, researching, and writing. His work with University of Arizona professor George Gehrels on identifying sandstone provenance using detrital-zircon U-Pb geochronology led to the determination that much of the Pennsylvanian to Jurassic sandstone of the Colorado Plateau was derived from the orogenic belt now associated with the Appalachian Mountains. Further detrital-zircon studies led to Dickinson preparing this publication in order to identify key aspects of the sedimentary and tectonic history of Mesozoic strata of the Colorado Plateau and directly adjacent areas. Dickinson divided the strata into seven depositional systems, but completed writing on only the lower five (Moenkopi, Chinle, Glen Canyon, San Rafael, Morrison) before his death in July 2015. The manuscript, however, was comprehensive in its treatment of upper Paleozoic strata and the lower five Mesozoic "deposystems," and an abstract and concluding text by Jon Spencer helped to complete the work" -- Publisher's description.

  • Conclusions.
The Marias River canyon in north-central Montana, incised into Upper Cretaceous strata of the Great Plains during latest Pleistocene to Holocene time, served as a locus of human activity tied to the unique floral and faunal resources it provided ancient peoples. Erosion of the main canyon walls resulted in deposition of tributary junction alluvial fans characterized by debris-flow and hyperconcentrated flow sediment transport processes where side canyons emerged onto the alluvial valley floor. These alluvial-fan deposits preserve Late Precontact archaeological remains accessible due to their postburial exposure where partially eroded by the meandering channel of the Marias River (Goose Bill site complex). Archaeological materials are also preserved high on the dissected canyon walls where movement of hillslope sediment and colluvium by sheetwash led to their burial (Sparrowhawk site). Deposition of sediment of contrasting physical attributes (grain size, sorting, clay mineral content) within the canyon influences soil substrate properties, favoring growth of specialized plant communities in both alluvial-fan and fluvial environments. These relations exemplify the strong geoecological connections among depositional environment and sediment characteristics, substrate properties, and vegetation community development. The plant communities, interacting in conjunction with the physical landscape, provided a range of habitats utilized by such large mammals as plains bison, Rocky Mountain elk, Audubon sheep, pronghorn, Rocky Mountain mule deer, and white-tailed deer. Four major bison bone layers, some including bison hair and other soft tissues, with associated stone arrow points and stone flakes (artifacts) and evidence of bone processing are preserved in alluvial-fan deposits exposed along the bank of the Marias River at the Goose Bill site complex. These relations illustrate: (1) human activities dating to ~100--595 yr B.P. (falling within the Late Precontact Period of regional archaeological prehistory) that reflect subsistence reliance on bison as a food source, (2) the importance of tributary alluvial fans proximal to canyon walls in preserving archaeological remains, and (3) the role of the meandering Marias River channel in destroying these deposits over a time period of <100 yr. Sediment deposition by overland flow higher up the canyon walls at the Sparrowhawk site preserves a somewhat older (710--830 yr B.P.) archaeological record suggestive of a broader spectrum of resource (food) processing spatially decoupled from an area of bison kill/death.

"Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative land-surface analysis and be part of an interdisciplinary approach to understanding natural hazards. It spans the research range from simple land observation to mathematical models of land surfaces. In this geomorphometric context, modelling is used to generate computerized representations of parts of the Earth's surface, based on digital elevation/surface models (DEM/DSM) and additional data and observations. New and improved algorithms for modelling both physico-geographical and geological processes and landforms how they change in space and time are presented in this volume: Data acquisition methods for acquiring high resolution elevation data, at local to regional scales. Novel methods for processing computation of extensive sets of elevation data and the improvement of existing methods. Application paths which present, how different data and methods give a new prompt to the various aspects of monitoring natural processes and modelling of natural hazards"--Back cover.

"Oil and gas fields greater than 500 MMBO equivalent are called giants. They are the world's ultimate prize. Giants drive worldwide economies and human prosperity. Nearly 50 years ago, Michel T. Halbouty encouraged geoscientists to practice Discovery Thinking and study fields that matter most when he initiated the Giant Fields AAPG Memoir series. Previous Giant Fields Memoirs are: Memoir 14, Memoir 30, Memoir 54, and Memoir 78. It is exciting that giant fields are still being found today. The decade 2000-2010 was characterized by the rise of the unconventional plays. These are dominated by large regional accumulations in small microscopic pore throats. In addition to the unconventional accumulations, deep-water accumulations continue to have increasing importance in the global hydrocarbon budget. The editors of this latest Giant Fields volume, R. K. Merrill and C. A. Sternbach, believe that giant fields will continue to be found with renewed technology, new exploration and production concepts, enhanced imaging, and the boldness to explore in deeper water and more remote geography. AAPG Memoir 113 proudly continues the fifth decade of the Giant Fields series" -- Provided by publisher.
