This atlas assembles the first collection of quantitative architectural data on deep-water outcrops geared for ease of use in reservoir characterization and modeling. It contains 154 papers, and is a collection of both qualitative and quantitative data on deep-water outcrops from around the world that includes all seven continents and 21 countries.
The Atlas is comprised of a hardcopy and CD-ROM. The hardcopy contains papers with summary information, illustrations, and quantitative data on 103 outcrops. It also contains overview papers on selected topics that summarize the types of deep-water deposits, seismic modeling of outcrops, current outcrop study techniques, and use of outcrop data in reservoir modeling.
The companion CD-ROM includes 38 journal-style articles on the overview papers from the hardcopy and more detailed reviews of selected outcrops.
The goal of this publication is to not repeat but to build on previous work on deep-water fields and reservoirs, outcrops, and on modern submarine analogs. By providing new and consistent data that more fully describe the various architectures present in deep-water outcrops, this Atlas provides important information for developing models and for comparing various depositional settings.
