Confidently defining the trajectory of faults that control structural traps is a recurring challenge for seismic interpreters. In regions with fault related folds, seismic and well data often constrain the upper fold geometry but the location and displacement of the controlling fault are unknown.

The Upper Carboniferous Shannon Basin of western Ireland contains a more-than-2300-m-thick (7540 ft) basin-fill succession, shallowing upward from deep-water to deltaic and incised fluvial deposits. The deep-water basin floor and slope succession is world renowned as an analog for hydrocarbon-bearing deep-water sandstones on several continental margins such as the basins in East and West Africa, South America, the Gulf of Mexico, and not least offshore northwest Europe.

The classic angular unconformity at Siccar Point became a landmark location in the history of geology after a boat trip to the site by James Hutton and his colleagues Professor John Playfair and Sir James Hall in 1788. Hutton successfully used the unconformity to support his view that the Earth’s landforms and geological record resulted from uniform natural processes such as sedimentation, uplift, erosion, and renewed sedimentation through deep geologic time.

The Roda Sandstone Member (Lower Eocene, Tremp-Graus Basin, Spanish Pyrenees) is interpreted as a well-exposed multiscale Gilbert-type delta. It is formed by multiple prograding lobate-shaped sandstone bodies up to 5 km (3 mi) long and 2–3 km (1–2 mi) wide, each constructed by a number of smaller scale (hunderds of meters) lobes that stack in a compensational mode responding to relative base level changes.

The Jurassic carbonate platforms of the central High Atlas in Morocco are well known for several high-quality outcrops. In the central High Atlas, there are two complementary locations that offer critical lessons for our understanding of Jurassic carbonate system evolution in extensional basins: a Lower Jurassic high-relief, carbonate platform with steep slopes that developed on the footwall of a rotating fault block in an active half-graben (Djebel Bou Dahar [DBD]) and an upper Lower to Middle Jurassic low-angle prograding carbonate ramp rich in ooids (Amellago ramp [AR]).

The successful implementation of geologic carbon sequestration depends on the careful evaluation of the petrophysical characteristics of the storage reservoir. Two petrophysical properties, porosity and permeability, constrain the reservoir in terms of its storage potential and injectivity.

Two different approaches have been used to evaluate the potential for CO2 geologic sequestration and CO2-assisted enhanced oil recovery in the major oil fields in Ohio: a volumetrics-based method, which uses field volumetric data to calculate CO2 storage capacity, and a production-based method, which uses historical oil and gas production data to calculate CO2 storage capacity.

Drilling for oil/gas and trawling on a continental shelf can cause damage to hard-bottom communities. Moving these activities offshore poses a threat to offshore communities. Habitat complexity is correlated with species diversity. The relationship of bottom relief to benthic species richness is not well understood in deeper communities.

Two-dimensional seismic refraction tomography was used to map the bedrock topography beneath Hallsands beach in southwest Devon, United Kingdom. Seismic refraction data were acquired from 11 spreads, 4 parallel to the beach and 7 normal to the beach, with either 12 or 24 geophones at 5-m (16-ft) spacing. Eight sediment cores were used to calibrate the velocity model.

Upward migration of brine because of pressurization resulting from injection is a risk of disposal of water produced with oil and geologic carbon storage. Analysis of the net production in each zone associated with oil production activities in the southern San Joaquin Valley, California, determined that net injection caused by disposal of water produced with oil occurred in zones above the shallowest zone with net production in several oil fields.

We herein document temporal changes in dissolved and gaseous methane concentrations in 12 domestic water wells completed in Late Devonian clastic aquifers in northeastern Pennsylvania over time periods from 0.2 to 2 yr. Wells with initial methane concentrations regarded as low (<5 mg/L), moderate (5–15 mg/L), and high (>15 mg/L) were all used in our study for comparative purposes.
