Basin Analysis and Modeling of the Burial, Thermal and by Makhous, Monzer; Galushkin, Yu. I.

By Makhous, Monzer; Galushkin, Yu. I.

This e-book is dedicated to the sector of basin research, and particularly to the single- and two-dimensional modeling of the burial, thermal and maturation histories of sedimentary basins, within the context of comparing their hydrocarbon power. a brand new modeling approach is elaborated during this paintings and utilized to continental basins. specific awareness is paid to precise positive factors of basin evolution, together with the compaction of sediments deposited at a variable cost, erosion of the sedimentary strata and basement, intrusive and hydrothermal task, thermal activation and reactivation of the basement, lateral warmth trade of multiple-aged blocks of the oceanic and continental lithospheres, the leaping of spreading axes, and so forth. substitute tools are utilized for the keep an eye on of tectonic subsidence, isostasy and rheology, lithosphere stretching and thinning.

Multidisciplinary Methods for Analysis Optimization and Control of Complex Systems

This publication contains lecture notes of a summer time college named after the overdue Jacques Louis Lions. The summer time college was once designed to alert either Academia and to the expanding function of multidisciplinary tools and instruments for the layout of complicated items in a variety of parts of socio-economic curiosity.

As is known, maximum extension amplitudes are attained on transition from a continental lithosphere to an oceanic one. 3 is needed for the basement surface to reach the level of a “mantle geoid” and for the spreading initi- 1.

A direct estimation of the extension amplitude from the apparent displacement of fault planes (using seismic profile data) give, as a rule, smaller values than those obtained from comparing the crust thickness or those obtained from analysis of subsidence amplitudes of the basin basement [Artyushkov, 1993].

2001]. There are basins in whose history the lithosphere extension was an intermediate stage. In these basins, the rift grabens were formed in the sedimentary strata and then became buried in the course of subsequent sedimentation stages (Upper Cretaceous — Miocene Syrte Graben in Libya; Lower-Cretaceous Central and Viking grabens in the North Sea basin). Newman and White (1997) have estimated the extension amplitudes and the accompanying strain rates from an analysis of basement subsidence curves for about 2 000 sequences of sediments in various basins around the world.

The uniform subsidence without inverse movements has led to conditions where oil generation started in the Late Cretaceous (that is, when traps were formed in the Early Cretaceous reservoirs during the Laramie tectonic phase). The early generation of hydrocarbons was favorable to the trap fill up [Vysotskii and Kucheruk, 1978]. In the Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic, the weak short-term uplifts were followed by a series of rapid subsidences. Some of the horizons of relatively deep-sea clay sediments of that period are quite good caps [Artyushkov and Buer, 1987].
