This volume of the Conference Proceedings contains 85 out of... more...

  • Clay Mineral Cements in Sandstonesby Richard Worden; Sadoon Morad

    Wiley 2009; US$ 230.00

    Clay minerals are one of the most important groups of minerals that destroy permeability in sandstones. However, they also react with drilling and completion fluids and induce fines migration during hydrocarbon production. They are a very complex family of minerals that are routinely intergrown with each other, contain a wide range of solid solutions... more...

  • Geomathematics: Theoretical Foundations, Applications and Future Developmentsby Frits Agterberg

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book provides a wealth of geomathematical case history studies performed by the author during his career at the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (NRCan-GSC). Several of the techniques newly developed by the author and colleagues that are described in this book have become widely adopted, not only for further research... more...

  • Quartz Cementation in Sandstones (Special Publication 29 of the IAS)by

    Wiley 2009; US$ 103.00

    Quartz is the major porosity-reducing cement in many sandstone sequences. Therefore, Quartz cements represent a key source of petrographic and geochemical information about diagenetic history. They are also the major determinant of sandstone reservoir quality. While the ultimate goal of research in this area is to make robust predictions about the... more...
