Historically important as reservoirs of vast quantities of hydrocarbons, recent advances in technology have dramatically improved our ability to examine these sand and mud bodies. Unfortunately, this proliferation of data has made it difficult for geoscientists to examine all the aspects of these important systems. The authors have, therefore, compiled 23 key papers, discussing current examination techniques and reviewing the important geological and geophysical characteristics of both ancient and modern fan and turbidite systems. This monograph on sedimentology, stratigraphy, petroleum, gas, coal and marine geology is intended for libraries, industrial research laboratories, scientists, practitioners and graduate students.
