Thrust Tectonics and Hydrocarbon Systems
resulted from an international conference at Royal Holloway University of London. This CD-ROM is a reprint of Memoir 82 (originally published in 2004, 667 pages) and contains 33 chapters divided into four sections: Geodynamics of Thrust Systems, Analog Modeling of Thrust Systems, Fault-Related Folds in Thrust Systems, and Case Studies.
These papers summarise recent advances in thrust studies and their application to hydrocarbon exploration and production.
Key topics addressed include the application of the critically tapered Coulomb wedge model to thrust systems both in nature and in experiments, the interaction of surface processes with thrust systems, basement-involved thrust systems and inversion, fault-related folds in thrust belts, and growth stratal development in thrust belts.
Fold-and-thrust belts described and discussed in this volume include the Alps, the Andes, the Apennines, the Appalachians, the Alice Springs Orogen in Australia, the Albanides, the Atlas in Morocco, the Canadian Cordillera and the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Kutei Basin, Kalimantan, the Himalayas, the New England Orogen, Papua New Guinea, and the Spanish Pyrenees, as well as deepwater fold and thrust belts such as the Niger Delta and the Gulf of Mexico.
Memoir 82 provides an in-depth look at thrust tectonics and hydrocarbon systems, and is a milestone publication as a major new examination of thrust fault systems.
