Unformatted text preview: MPG 160. Lecture 1 Introduction and plate tectonics Introduction Broadly interrelated assemblages of geologic structures that are repeated in regions of similar deformation, and their associated hydrocarbon traps can be anticipated prior to exploration Harding and Lowell, 1979, AAPG Bull, V. 63, 1016-1058 Structural Styles Harding and Lowell, 1979, AAPG Bull, V. 63, 1016-1058 Harding and Lowell, 1979, AAPG Bull, V. 63, 1016-1058 Basin analysis The integrated study of sedimentary basins as geodynamic entities. This requires an appreciation of the coupling between mantle, lithosphere, oceans, atmosphere, and land surface Allen and Allen 2005 Basin modeling The quantitative modeling of geological processes in sedimentary basins on geological timescales. This term is not only used for the modeling of processes in sediments, but also for the modeling of crustal and mantle heat and mass Fow processes to predict basin type and tectonic subsidence Hantschel and Kauerauf 2009 Structural Geology Basin analysis Basin modeling ?...
