Members of the Society can buy books at considerable discounts. Therefore, it is advantageous to use a series of lithofacies maps as a sequence of overlays plotted on transparent paper. Such maps permit direct visual determination of the lithology and areal extent of aquifers and indicate areas of possible stream losses or by: 7. lithofacies maps of China onto a reconstruction for the Mid-dle Ordovician. The scanned source maps (Wang, , for all China, with an additional separate overlay of South China from Ma et al., ) were rectified, then assigned numerical ages based on an update of the China StratigraphicAuthor: James G.

Lithofacies maps for the middle Cambrian (A) and late Cambrian (B) in north-central U.S. and southern Canada. Examine the two lithofacies maps above, which show the areal distribution of sedimentary rock types of middle Cambrian (upper map) and late Cambrian (lower map) age. Richard C. Selley, Stephen A. Sonnenberg, in Elements of Petroleum Geology (Third Edition), Seismic Facies Analysis. Seismic facies analysis is the description and geological interpretation of seismic reflectors between sequence boundaries (Sieck and Self, ).It includes the analysis of parameters such as the configuration, continuity, amplitude, phase, frequency, and. Lithofacies associated within point bars have been well documented and an established link between deposition process, depositional form, and reservoir properties has been developed (Bridge and Tye, ; Hein and Cotterill, ; Hubbard et al., ; Smith, ).Point bar lithofacies form genetically related associations deposited in a continuum related to flow energy (Nardin et al., ). A series of lithofacies maps which covers the entire sedimentary section of a region without any gap (age by age) makes it possible to reconstruct the history of sediment accumulation and the history of development of the physicogeographic environment and to identify their interrelationships; it also makes it possible to identify the conditions of habitation and spreading of flora and fauna and the conditions of .

Creating a Lithofacies Map One of the most important tools for reconstructing ancient environments is a lithofacies map – a map showing the distribution of rock types (lithofacies) in an area.
