Microfacies of Carbonate Rocks : Analysis, Interpretation and Application

This new edition synthesizes the methods used in microfacies analysis and details the potential of microfacies in evaluating depositional environments and diagenetic history, and, in particular, the application of microfacies data in the study of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs and the provenance o...
