Deep-Water Clastic Sediments: A Core Workshop
This core workshop on deep-water clastic sediments was organized to provide participants with an opportunity to view cores from a variety of deep water depositional settings and to demonstrate the application of process sedimentology in the interpretation of depositional environments from the study of cores and associated subsurface data. The studies assembled for presentation in the workshop have dealt with sedimentary sequences which have been interpreted as having formed by deposition of non-calcareous, clastic sediment in relatively deep water and also have been concerned principally with coarser deep-water sediments of such stratigraphic sequences because of their potential as hydrocarbon reservoirs. The notes were organized to provide written discussions of the studies in which the cores were used. In addition it was a principal objective of the organizers that each contribution contain subsurface wireline logs and extensive photographic coverage of the whole-diameter core sequences.
