Although the general aspects of oolitic depositional systems are well-documented, their landscape-scale patterns (geobodies) are not well enough understood to offer quantitative, predictive insights for reservoir characterization. To begin to fill this basic gap in understanding, this study describes the morphology, hydrodynamics, and process sedimentology of several modern tidally dominated Bahamian ooid shoal complexes and compares the patterns with patterns in Kansas Pennsylvanian analogs. A companion paper explores linkages further, documenting petrophysical, geophysical, and production characteristics of these Pennsylvanian oolitic reservoirs.

Integrating remote sensing imagery with quantitative bathymetric, fluid flow, and granulometric data in a GIS, we document...
