Charles Darwin and Sir John F.W. Herschel

Charles Pence
An examination of the relationship between Darwin and Herschel’s philosophy of science. I argue for a new reading of this connection, based on a careful reading of Herschel and his critiques of Darwin’s theory.

7. Moab fault, Utah (Imber et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
The Moab Fault is a steep normal fault which cuts and exposes a sequence of interbedded sands and argillaceous units ranging from Late Permian to Mid Cretaceous age. Throws of up to 960 m are observed in surface exposures. The footwall and hanging-wall strata are deformed into a series of long-wavelength normal drag folds of variable amplitude that trend NW, approximately parallel to the strike of the Moab Fault. The Moab virtual fieldtrip has been...

8. Carbonates, Alpine foreland (Viseur et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
Carbonate architectures can be complex, reflecting spatial and temporal changes and the interaction between biological, physical and sedimentary processes. In such cases, it can be difficult to characterize the 3D geometry of sedimentary or diagenetic bodies at a range of different scales. Laser scanning technology offers a new approach to determine these geometries from outcrops. We present a case study located near Marseilles (France) and corresponding to the 'La Marcouline' formation. These deposits are particularly...

3. Nukul syncline, Gulf of Suez (Hodgetts et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
The authors have developed bespoke software called Virtual Reality Geological Studio (VRGS) which can be used for the interpretation and integration of traditional forms of data with the lidar scan data (Fig. 2). The development of this software was driven by the lack of geoscience-specific software that allows full use of the scan data. In outcrop data it is often difficult to constrain geometries in 3D. Data is usually high-density in some areas, and sparse...

4. Deltaic reservoir analogues from central Utah (Howell et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
This virtual fieldtrip illustrates the utilization of outcrops and VOs to build geometrically accurate geocellular models that have been used to address oilfield production challenges at a variety of scales. VOs from two Cretaceous deltaic units, the Panther Tongue sandstone and the Ferron Sandstone that crop out in the northern Book Cliffs and the San Rafael Swell, are presented. This involved creating a large-scale VO covering 10 000 km2 from publicly available DEM and aerial...

2. Grès d'Annot Formation, SE France (Tomasso et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
Salt withdrawal minibasins contain significant petroleum reservoirs in many petroleum provinces around the world, such as the deep northern Gulf of Mexico and offshore Brazil. These minibasins are typically connected by large canyon-like channels that serve as conduits for sediment gravity flows bypassing from proximal basins into adjacent distal basins. The Grand Coyer sub-basin of the Eocene–Oligocene Grès d'Annot Formation of the southwestern French Alps provides an excellent outcrop analogue of an interbasinal conduit that...

6. Arkitsa fault, Greece (Jones et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
This VO dataset shows complex fault geometries developing in an area of active extension, and also illustrates how an enhanced view of the outcrop can be presented by superimposing quantitative geometrical analyses on top of the VO topography. The outcrop is an important analogue for studying the development of 3D fault zones and associated fault damage, and the likely effects on connectivity and reservoir performance. It is located on the eastern shore of Gulf of...

1. Shannon Basin, West of Ireland (Thurmond et al.)

K.J.W. McCaffrey, D. Hodgetts, J. Howell, D. Hunt, J. Imber, R.R. Jones, M. Tomasso, J. Thurmond & S. Viseur
The Carboniferous Shannon Basin in western Ireland is approximately 100 km wide and filled with a sedimentary succession of up to 2200 m thick. The fill is an overall deepening to shallowing-upwards succession from shallow-water clastics to deepwater carbonates through a source-rock quality deep basinal shale (Clare Shale), followed by a 460 m thick sand-rich turbidite unit (the Ross Formation), a 550 m thick overall fine-grained, complex slope succession (the Gull Island Formation) and capped...
