  We have developed the concept of microseismic facies analysis, a method that facilitates partitioning of an unconventional reservoir into distinct facies units on the basis of their microseismic response along with integrated interpretation of microseismic observations with 3D seismic data. It is based upon proposed links between magnitude-frequency distributions and Cited by: 9. NORWEGIAN JOURNAL OF GEOLOGY Depositional facies and reservoir quality 75 Fig. 5.

However, there have been conflicting views on the stratigraphical position andnumberof glacial horizons, and on the significance of glacial signs in the sequence. Pjetursson () described two lithified "moraine" horizons separated by marine beds. Abstract. A detailed study of paleoclimatic proxy data (stable isotopes, planktonic foraminiferal census data, carbonate content, and Ice Rafted Detritus (IRD)) in the surface sediments of the Greenland, Iceland and Norwegian Seas (GIN-seas) shows that different proxies are closely related to the surface water masses, to the position of oceanic fronts and to the sea ice by:

This long and extensive history of thin-section analysis of glacigenic sediments has given rise to a set of well-defined criteria, summarised in Table 1. A combination of processes Recently, several researchers have argued that processes at the ice-bed interface are a result of a continuum of processes, including melt-out, lodgement.   The mid-Jurassic Garn Formation in the Halten Terrace area, Mid-Norway Continental Shelf, has been studied on the basis of ~ m of well-core samples from 9 selected wells, geophysical wireline logs from nearly 30 wide Author: Kay Sørbø.
