Muds and Mudstones: Physical and Fluid-Flow Properties (Geological Society Special Publication)
by:Andrew C. Aplin
Muds and mudstones are the prime control on fluid flow in sedimentary basins and near surface environments. As the world's most common sediment type, they act as aquitards in sedimentary basins, restricting water flow and influencing the development of overpressure. In petroleum systems they act as source rocks for nearly all oil and much gas, determine...
Muds and mudstones are the prime control on fluid flow in sedimentary basins and near surface environments. As the world's most common sediment type, they act as aquitards in sedimentary basins, restricting water flow and influencing the development of overpressure. In petroleum systems they act as source rocks for nearly all oil and much gas, determine migration directions between source and trap in most settings, and act as seals to many reservoirs. In near surface environments they not only control natural flow but have been commonly used to restrict leakage from waste disposal sites. This volume focuses on the poorly described physical properties of muds and mudstones in both near-surface and deep basinal settings. Amongst its contents are reviews of compaction, permeability, thermal conductivity and mechanical properties of mudstones, experimental studies of transport properties and case studies of the importance of fluid flow in both hydrogeological and petroleum systems. A unique collection of papers concerning the physical and fluid flow properties of muds and mudstones, covering shallow and deep burial environments.

Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc.
