Dr. John Hoganson retired in July after working for the North Dakota Geological Survey for 33 years. GEOLOGY OF THE MINOT AREA Fred J. Anderson Lorraine A.

    wells onto seismic lines. Since the seis-mic applications can be used to inter-pret multiple 2-D and 3-D seismic surveys, the lines of section can be defined along 2-D seismic lines, 3-D inlines and crosslines, or well locations and free map points. Once an LOS has been . The interest in seismic stratigraphic techniques to interpret reflection datasets is well established. The advent of sophisticated subsurface reservoir studies and 4D monitoring, for optimising the hydrocarbon production in existing fields, does demonstrate the importance of the 3D seismic methodology. The added value of reflection seismics to the petroleum industry has clearly been proven.

    Seismicity in Virginia Most people when they think of Earthquakes associate these events with California and the West coast, where there is a major fault, the San Andreas. In comparison, Virginia is situated in the middle of a tectonic plate and rests on a passive margin. . In geology, a fault is a planar fracture or discontinuity in a volume of rock across which there has been significant displacement as a result of rock-mass movement. Large faults within the Earth's crust result from the action of plate tectonic forces, with the largest forming the boundaries between the plates, such as subduction zones or transform faults.

The course is designed for geophysicists working on seismic interpretation of complex structures, who need to understand the seismic expression of structures in petroleum basins, and correctly apply structural models and techniques to seismic interpretation. Top South Dakota Geologic Formations: See reviews and photos of geologic formations in South Dakota, United States on Tripadvisor.

This ,scale digital geologic map details the complex Early Proterozoic granitic rocks, Early Proterozoic supracrustal metamorphic rocks, and Archean crystalline basement of the Black Hills. The granitic rocks host pegmatite deposits renowned for their feldspar, mica, spodumene, and beryl.

The supracrustal rocks host the Homestake gold mine, which produced more than 40 million ounces. South Dakota Geological Survey web site.

Originators: Redden, Jack A. and DeWitt, Ed H. Publication: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Map Shallow seismic-reflection data are presented to demonstrate their usefulness for locating and showing the continuity and lateral extent of rebound fracture zones in the Pierre Shale.

Rebound fracture zones, identified in boreholes near Hayes, South Dakota, have variable depth, thickness, and character, thus making questionable the correlation of these zones between holes.

Pierre Shale, division of Upper Cretaceous rocks in the United States (the Cretaceous Period lasted from about million to million years ago). Named for exposures studied near old Fort Pierre, S.D., the Pierre Shale occurs in South Dakota, Montana, Colorado, Minnesota, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Pierre consists of about m (about 2, feet) of dark gray shale, some.

The Pierre Shale / p ɪər ʃ eɪ l / is a geologic formation or series in the Upper Cretaceous which occurs east of the Rocky Mountains in the Great Plains, from Pembina Valley in Canada to New Mexico. The Pierre Shale was described by Meek and Hayden in in the Proceedings of the Academy of Sciences (Philadelphia).

Geologic structures such as faults and folds are the architecture of the earth’s crust. Geologic structures influence the shape of the landscape, determine the degree of landslide hazard, bring old rocks to the surface, bury young rocks, trap petroleum and natural gas, shift during earthquakes, and channel fluids that create economic deposits of metals such as gold and silver.Vertical Seismic Profiling Part A: Principles (Handbook of geophysical exploration volume 14A) [Bob A.
