Question: 1 what are the two siliciclastic deposits that are closest...

Question details

1. What are the two siliciclastic deposits that are closest to a highland (i.e. mountains) area that is experiencing erosion and eventual transport to the ocean?

2. What is the river type that frequently occurs in a wavy pattern on the surface about half way between a mountain area and the ocean? What is the name or the potential reservoir rock that these deposit?

3. Siliciclastic sediments go through which six major grain size changes (in order) during their transport from erosional source to open marine water?

4. After a river deposits its siliciclastic load in open marine waters, describe the differences in the developed sand bodies between the following five types of deposits:

a) no significant ocean current, tidal action or wave action,

b) significant wave action near normal to the coastline but no tidal or current action,

c) significant ocean current nearly parallel to the coastline but no significant tidal or wave action,

d) significant tidal action nearly normal to the coastline but no significant ocean current or waves,

e) as for b) with significant constant offshore winds.

5. Briefly explain why shoreface siliciclastics can have excellent reservoir properties.

6. Describe the development of hydrocarbon Carbonate Pinnacle Reef reservoirs.
