Studying fine-grained siliciclastic deposits of late Middle Devonian in the northern Appalachian Basin provides an exquisite natural laboratory to observe the complex environments in which mud can accumulate. More detailed correlation and facies characterization of this succession provide a wealth of information and insight into the diverse transport mechanisms responsible for distributing clastics hundreds of kilometers away from a tectonically active source area.

Tide-dominated or tide-influenced coastal marine deposits form some of the most complicated and largest hydrocarbon fields in the world (Wood, 2004 and references cited therein). Good outcrop analogs can provide significant insight to geologists for recognizing tidal influence in core and interpreting petrophysical log data, thus reducing uncertainty and risk when developing depositional models and planning for field development.

Environmental Geosciences Article

Cambrian–Ordovician strata of the midwestern United States are considered a promising reservoir for geologic storage of carbon dioxide. To assess the potential of the Ordovician St. Peter Sandstone, storage-resource estimates were generated using a hierarchical approach to estimating prospective storage resources.

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.
