The Tide-Dominated Han River Delta provides a thorough analysis of a river delta in which tidal currents have reworked the river-borne sediment, generating characteristic geomorphological and sedimentological signatures in the process. Such "tide-dominated" deltas are common in the modern ocean, forming the substrate upon which entire populations are built. Furthermore, ancient examples contain enormous volumes of hydrocarbon. Despite this, tide-dominated deltas remain less well understood than their wave- and river-dominated counterparts, largely because processes within them are inherently more complex and fewer modern examples have been investigated in detail. This multi-year study by a team of experts in coastal geoscience represents the most complete documentation of a tide-dominated delta to date. Results help advance, and are applicable to, a broad range of fields within sedimentary geology, including clastic sedimentology, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, and coastal geomorphology, in addition to petroleum geology and reservoir engineering. . Offers new access to results of a multi-year hydrocarbon-reservoir analogue study not available elsewhere. . Features 75 full-color figures and illustrations to emphasize critical aspects of the delta's sedimentology, geomorphology, and stratigraphy. . Provides basic data that better define what tide-dominated deltas are, how these complex systems behave over time, and why this is so. . Aids petroleum geologists and reservoir engineers in predicting the distribution of baffles and barriers in tide-dominated sediment bodies, helping in the successful development of reservoirs.Reseña del editor:
The Tide-Dominated Han River Delta provides a thorough understanding of the delta and the evolution of its deeper offshore belts, where oil exploration and production activities are expanding into the region's little-known deep water terrain. The result of a multi-year study by a team of experts in geomorphology, stratigraphy, and sedimentology, this new reference is a source of invaluable data to exploration geoscientists working in the Han River Delta region, and a blueprint that can be applied in other regions globally. The Han River Delta is one of the most prolific oil provinces in the world, yet its architecture reveals a sandy and muddy structure that makes it notoriously difficult to harvest its hydrocarbons. The oil and gas sector world-wide has interest in operational and developmental activities in the Han River Delta since the results of the delta's study can be applied to comparable hydrocarbon settings globally. Its applications will play a major role not only in future exploration efforts in the region but globally as well. * Offers new access to results of a multi-year hydrocarbon exploration and extraction study not available elsewhere* Features 75 full-color figures and illustrations to emphasize critical exploration and extraction applications in the region* The first study of a modern tide-dominated delta to thoroughly document the detailed architecture of a complete pro-gradational sediment package* Aids petroleum geologists and reservoir engineers in accurately predicting the location of the sediment-based regions of hydrocarbon deposits, helping in the successful development of reservoirs
