Milankovitch Sea-Level Changes, Cycles and Reservoirs on Carbonate Platforms in Greenhouse and Ice-House Worlds
This short course is in three parts. Part 1 examines in general terms how carbonate cycles are generated on carbonate platforms, types of carbonate cycles developed, stacking patterns, margin geometries, degree of disconformity development, and briefly overview any characteristic diagenetic effects. Part 2 examines cycles and one- and two-dimensional stacking patterns, high resolution stratigraphy, and reservoir geometry on Later Permian platforms in the Permian Basin of West Texas. Part 3 examines reservoirs formed in an ice-house world during the major Carboniferous glaciation of Gondwana, using the Middle Pennsylvanian carbonates of the Giant Aneth oil field, Paradox Basin, Utah.
