Molecular stratigraphy research for oil-source rock correlation
Total Grant Value
2000 - 2002
Depth profiles in sediments of many organic compounds were evaluated to discover the reactions and conditions that determine composition.
The study results show that these can be correlated with free hydrocarbon occurrences in sediments, making a useful exploration tool.
