    Hainan Island, located in the South China Sea off the Chinese coast and separated from mainland China by the Qiongzhou Strait, has a complex geological history that it has experienced multiple stages of metamorphism, volcanic and intrusive activities, tectonic drifting and more. The oldest rocks, the Proterozoic metamorphic basement, are not widely exposed, but mostly found in the western . The Lower Carboniferous Mrar Formation is exposed extensively along the southern margin of the Ghadames basin in northwest Libya. The basal part of the Mrar forms the cap rock and possible hydrocarbon source for many of the producing reservoirs in the underlying Tahara sandstones. Furthermore, the.

Get this from a library. Structure and depositional environments of some carboniferous rocks of western Kentucky. [Peter W Whaley;]. This new model, based on precisely determined characteristics of the rocks and analogies to Holocene depositional environments, shows (1) that Mississippian Newman limestones reflect deposits consisting of offshore carbonate islands surrounded by red and green clays (Pennington), (2) that orthoquartzites of the Lee Formation (Pennsylvanian.

A narrow strip along the western shore of Narragansett Bay originated from Carboniferous rocks including slate and shale. The soils on the western shore are dark colored, silt loam.

Twenty percent of soil in Rhode Island resulted from glacial outwash and tend to be thick, well sorted layers of sediment with stratified layers of sand and gravel.

Carboniferous Period, fifth interval of the Paleozoic Era, succeeding the Devonian Period and preceding the Permian Period. In terms of absolute time, the Carboniferous Period began approximately million years ago and ended million years ago.

Its duration of approximately 60 million. Detailed stratigraphic and sedimentological studies of the Tertiary Tongue River Member of the Fort Union Formation in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming, and the Cretaceous Blackhawk Formation and Star Point Sandstone in the Wasatch Plateau, Utah, indicate that the depositional environments of coal played a major role in controlling coal thickness, lateral Cited by: 8.

A preparatory text covering the principles and applications of sedimentology and stratigraphy, this book uses modern examples of depositional environments and the ancient stratigraphic record.

For example, widespread deposits of orthoquartzite or quartz arenite have been interpreted as offshore bars, tidal channels, and barrier bars of a marine environment or as distributary channels, braided streams, or delta lobes of a terrestrial environment.

A few geologists use the word "quartzite" for sedimentary rocks that have an exceptionally high quartz content. This usage is falling out of favor but remains in older textbooks and other older publications.

The name "quartz arenite" is a more appropriate and less confusing name for these rocks.
