Tectonic and Structural Framework of the Zagros Fold-Thrust Belt, Vol 3 - Developments in Structural Geology and Tectonics - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 27, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2019--

The “Tectonic and Structural Framework of the Zagros Fold-Thrust Belt, Vol 3. Developments in Structural Geology and Tectonics” book from Elsevier Science and Technology has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The latest volume in the Developments in Structural Geology and Tectonics series from Elsevier, Tectonic and Structural Framework of the Zagros Fold-Thrust Belt is a collection of the most up-to date research and developments in the unique tectonic and structural geology of the Zagros. The Zagros fold-thrust belt is famous among geologists and is one of the most-studied terrains in the world. Because of its unique structures, the Zagros orogeny is challenging for many researchers and experts; this book is the essential reference that collates the newest data and fully explores that aspect. In addition, because the Zagros range is a potential source for hydrocarbons, it is of interest to petroleum geologists and exploration companies worldwide. This book is an essential, cutting-edge reference for oil companies, structural geologists, and students at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Includes valuable new data about one of the most famous collisional mountain ranges in the world, the Zagros fold-thrust belts, as a guide for other collisional ranges such as the Himalaya, the Alps, and the Andes, as they share common fundamental deformation mechanisms

Provides research from geologists across the world, with the goal of understanding the unique dynamics and kinematics of the Zagros range

Key Topics Covered:

1. Fracture analysis of hydrocarbon reservoirs using static and dynamic data, case study: the Aghajari oil field (the Zagros fold- thrust belt)
