M93 - Shale Tectonics

Edited by Lesli J. Wood

 

The phenomenon of rocks moving under their own means has always fascinated both scientists and nonscientists alike. The 2006 AAPG Hedberg Conference on Mobile Shale Basins was held in response to a need to gather industry and academic communities in a common forum to address the very existence of mobile shales. Stimulating and informative discussions at that Conference led to this special volume on shale tectonics.

AAPG Memoir 93 documents shale tectonics from a variety of basins around the world, including the southern Beaufort Sea; the Krishna-Godavari Basin, India; eastern offshore Trinidad; offshore Brunei; and along the westernmost portion of the Mediterranean Sea. The book also provides information on the petrographic framework, behavior, geometries, and geodynamic models of shales.
Publication of this Memoir coincides with a growing interest in shales as hydrocarbon reservoirs, and will add to the body of literature that significantly addresses both extrusive and intrusive shales.
