Geology: A heavyweight book on the Jurassic
A comprehensive 948 page book: "The Jurassic of Denmark and Greenland" is now available from Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS).
The book describes the geological evolution during a period of geological time that is important for society today. Jurassic sedimentary successions include important source and reservoir rocks for oil and gas and are also important in the development of CO2 and gas storage and geothermal energy facilities.
Through 28 articles the reader is presented with the results of a period of intensive research into the Jurassic in the late 1980s and 1990s. Detailed chronostratigraphic and biostratigraphic reviews of the Jurassic of Northwest Europe are followed by a range of stratigraphic, sedimentological, structural and geochemical studies of the successions of Denmark and East Greenland.
The Jurassic of Denmark and adjacent areas occurs mostly in the subsurface and research has thus focussed on the wealth of boreholes and reflection seismic data resulting from over thirty years of hydrocarbon exploration. The Jurassic of East Greenland in contrast is exposed in spectacular cliffs along fjords and mountainsides and has come to be regarded as a unique "field laboratory", particularly amongst those working on the Norwegian shelf - the conjugate margin of East Greenland.
