By Don Cummings, Kyungsik Choi, Jaehwa Jin

The Tide-Dominated Han River Delta offers a radical research of a river delta within which tidal currents have remodeled the river-borne sediment, producing attribute geomorphological and sedimentological signatures within the process.  Such "tide-dominated" deltas are universal within the sleek ocean, forming the substrate upon which whole populations are built.  additionally, historical examples include huge, immense volumes of hydrocarbon.  regardless of this, tide-dominated deltas stay much less good understood than their wave- and river-dominated opposite numbers, principally simply because strategies inside them are inherently extra complicated and less sleek examples were investigated in detail.

This multi-year research by way of a workforce of specialists in coastal geoscience represents the main whole documentation of a tide-dominated delta to date.  effects aid improve, and are acceptable to, a wide diversity of fields inside of sedimentary geology, together with clastic sedimentology, seismic and series stratigraphy, and coastal geomorphology, as well as petroleum geology and reservoir engineering.

  • Offers new entry to result of a multi-year hydrocarbon-reservoir analogue research no longer to be had elsewhere
  • Features seventy five full-color figures and illustrations to stress serious facets of the delta’s sedimentology, geomorphology, and stratigraphy
  • Provides easy facts that higher outline what tide-dominated deltas are, how those advanced structures behave over the years, and why this is often so
  • Aids petroleum geologists and reservoir engineers in predicting the distribution of baffles and limitations in tide-dominated sediment our bodies, supporting within the profitable improvement of reservoirs
