      A supplement to the classic Sedimentation Engineering (Manual 54), this new volume not only documents the evolution of the field over a year period, but also reports on the state of the practice. This manual addresses new topics in physical processes, measurements, modeling, and practice, mainly in the context of rivers and inland water bodies. We have analyzed a suite of seventy-four formation-water samples from Mississippian and Pennsylvanian carbonate and siliciclastic strata in the Illinois basin for major, minor, and trace element concentrations and for strontium isotopic composition. A subset of these samples was also analyzed for boron isotopic composition. Data are used to interpret origin of salinity and chemical and Sr.

      From Mid-Mississippian to Late Pennsylvanian time, a shallow cratonic basin covered the southern half of the state, along with southern Indiana and western Kentucky. This basin is known as the Illinois Basin. A heterolithic mix of thin sedimentary units filled this basin, with deposition keeping apace of gentle subsidence throughout the period. Research Interests: My research currently focuses on five main areas: 1) biogeochemical cycles in organic-rich sediments; 2) controls on stable isotope composition of organic matter (OM) and interpretation of C and N isotope records in organic-rich sediments and coals; 3) linkages between OM and past atmospheric composition; 4) coal maturation and the role of heating rate (contact .

Other Quaternary sediments in the study area are interpreted as alluvium, colluvium, talus, . The typically independent and isolated methods of diagenesis and sequence stratigraphy, when integrated, can serve as a powerful tool for the understanding and prediction of the distribution of diagenetic alterations of depositional porosity and permeability and of their impact on reservoir quality distribution and evolution for those working in the fields of sedimentary petrology, sequence.

Regionally, the mineralogy of the sandstone is quite homogeneous, and the sandstone is a quart­ zose graywacke or a subgraywacke.

In Jefferson County, in the Illinois coal basin, southern Illinois, the Pennsylvanian column between the Shoal Creek and Stonefort Limestones, an interval of about feet, was divided into seven intervals separated by widespread coals or limestones readily recognized on electric logs, namely the Shoal Creek Limestone, coal No.

Pennsylvanian sediments of the Illinois Basin were deposited in a gently subsiding trough that was open toward the south until post-Pennsylvanian time, when it was closed by uplift of the Pascola Arch south of Illinois.

The greatest subsidence took place in the southeastern part of the state where the system is thickest.
