By Simon D. Houghton (auth.), David Graham Jenkins (eds.)

Seven unique case-studies are offered during this quantity, each one describing the applying of micropaleontology and palynology in utilized geology: (1) a examine of the trendy distribution of coccolith sedimentation within the North Sea and its power for destiny program in basin research; (2) ostracods are proven to be stable paleoenvironmental signs within the early Cretaceous and Tertiary; (3) a biogenic fuel seep within the North Sea is proven to be marked by way of diagnostic benthonic foraminifera; (4) within the North Sea hydrocarbon exploration, built-in experiences of micropaleontology have supplied valuable info; (5) palynofacies research are proven to be important in deciding upon depositional occasions and hydrocarbon resource rock capability; (6) the applying of paleontology and sedimentology to series stratigraphy is established within the early Cretaceous; and (7) the appliance of micropaleontology is proven to be a necessary instrument in either engineering and financial geology. such a lot chapters were ready by means of earth scientists from industry.
The research of microfossils provided during this ebook offers worthy info for stratigraphers, petroleum geologists and for engineers and financial geologists operating in hydrocarbon exploration and basin analysis.

G. , (1986) to date uplifted, latest Pleistocene sediments from the Solomon Islands. Okada (1983) suggested that the abundance of Florisphaera profunda may be used as an indicator of palaeo depth of sediments. In marginal seas from the western Pacific the species showed a positive correlation with depth, increasing to over 50% of the assemblages at depths of 2000m. The species was absent in shallow water sediments. Separate counts of F. profunda var. elongata did not show any correlation between abundance and water depth .
