Numerical and experimental models of turbidity currents and other sediment gravity flows are powerful tools that can help quantify how the fundamental physics of sediment transport affects the distribution of sediments and patterns of erosion and deposition. Several studies using 1D/3D numerical models at full-field scale and flume-tank experiments at reduced-scale provide quantitative insights into reservoir properties and rules that can be used to build realistic reservoir models and to help de-risk exploration targets. Flow models provide unparalleled details, through movies, deposit analysis and computer simulations that allow for extrapolating observations from core, logs and seismic data to their depositional environment context.

The key controls in sediment transport are the morphology of the seafloor along the path of the flow, the composition of the sediment both at the source and along the system, and the dynamic interaction between flow and topography. Over time, erosion/deposition and tectonic forces interact, leading to changes in the equilibrium profile, that result in the formation of geologic strata. The response of flow processes to changes in the topography are the key to understanding the distribution of facies and the stratigraphic architecture of deepwater reservoirs. These processes can be verified in well imaged and calibrated near-seafloor systems, providing the key elements for building realistic reservoir models, which are ultimately tested against dynamic data from producing reservoirs.

The Arctic Ocean occupies a unique tectonic setting as a small, confined ocean between two much larger oceans - the subducting Pacific margin and the opening North Atlantic. Unlike many of the world's oceans, evidence on both timing and geometry is poor, and major elements of the plate tectonic evolution are still "up for grabs". The Arctic has experienced significant plate motion from Cretaceous to present, and because of the ambiguities in the oceanic signature, resolving the most likely kinematic history is critical in understanding paleogeography and hence reservoir and source distribution. I will show a 3-stage kinematic model which, while not a unique solution, seems to best satisfy the known constraints.

Since the introduction of Electrical Borehole Images over twenty years ago many very useful applications have been developed for this data. These include applications, which range from handpicked bed dips to fracture analysis, from thin-bedded pay determination to measuring vugular porosity, from fault geometry determination to facies analysis. These applications are made possible because of the high resolution provided by these images. The images provide the means to perform detailed high-resolution reservoir characterization at the borehole. This presentation will concentrate on structural aspects of borehole image interpretation. Fault and fold examples from different basins across the USA will be examined with examples from around different US Basins.
