A Color Guide to the Petrography of Carbonate Rocks: Grains, Textures, Porosity, Diagenesis [Repost]

A Color Guide to the Petrography of Carbonate Rocks: Grains, Textures, Porosity, Diagenesis (AAPG Memoir) by Peter A. Scholle
American Association of Petroleum Geologists | November 1, 2003 | English | ISBN: 0891813586 | 474 pages | PDF | 172 MB

This volume expands and improves the AAPG 1978 classic, A Color Illustrated Guide to Carbonate Rock Constituents, Textures, Cements, and Porosities (AAPG Memoir 27). Carbonate petrography can be quite complicated. Changing assemblages of organisms through time, coupled with the randomness of thin-section cuts through complex shell forms, add to the difficulty of identifying skeletal grains.

Argillaceous Rock Atlas

Argillaceous Rock Atlas (Casebooks in Earth Sciences) by Roger M. Slatt
English | 6 Aug. 1990 | ISBN: 0387973060 | 156 Pages | PDF | MB

A major reason for the lack of understanding of argillaceous rocks is that the key to understanding their history lies in their microfabric. Argillaceous Rock Atlas addresses this aspect by taking a systematic approach to the analysis of shale fabrics. This approach combines such techniques as scanning electron microscopy, x-radiography and thin-section petrography. Thus the book is amply illustrated with scanning electron and thin section photomicrographs and x-radiograms which show the salient features of shale at a variety of scales.

Color Illustrated Guide to Carbonate Rock Constituents, Textures, Cements (Memoir) by Peter A. Scholle
English | 31 Dec. 1978 | ISBN: 0891813039 | 248 Pages | PDF | 204 MB

The purpose of this book is to make available to geologists who may not be specialists in carbonate petrography a volume which illustrates the major grains, textures, cements, and porosity types found in carbonate rocks. Successful hydrocarbon exploration in carbonate rocks is a difficult and complex problem. Carbonate rocks not only have complicated and varied depositional patterns, but also are subject to extensive post-depositional alteration which may radically alter original porosity and permeability relationships.

Image Analysis and Mathematical Morphology by Jean Serra

Image Analysis and Mathematical Morphology by Jean Serra
Academic Pr | January 1983 | English | ISBN: 0126372403 | 621 pages | DJVU | 6 MB

Mathematical morphology was born in 1964 when G. Matheron was asked to investigate the relationships between the geometry of porous media and their permeabilities, and when at the same time, I was asked to quantify the petrography of iron ores, in order to predict their milling properties. This initial period A964-1968) has resulted in a first body of theoretical notions (Hit or Miss transformations, openings and closings, Boolean models), and also in the first prototype of the texture analyser. It was also the time of the creation of the Centre de Morphologie Mathematique on the campus of the Paris School of Mines at Fontainebleau (France).
"Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks, Second Edition" by Sam Boggs, Jr.

"Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks, Second Edition" by Sam Boggs, Jr.
CamUni Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0521897165 9780511719332 9780511512421 | 612 pages | PDF | 16 MB

This Second Edition maintains the fundamental structure of the original book, and presents a comprehensive treatment of sedimentary petrography and petrology. It has been thoroughly updated to include new concepts and ideas, and cutting-edge techniques such as cathodoluminescence imaging of sedimentary rocks and backscattered electron microscopy.
