About this book

The Devonian stratgraphic record contains a wealth of informaton that highlights the response of carbonate platorms to both global and local phenomena that drive carbonate architecture and productvity. Signals embedded in the Middle-Upper Devonian carbonate record related to biotc crises and stressed oceanic conditons, long-term accommodaton trends, and peak greenhouse to transitonal climatc changes are observed in multple localites around the world. Devonian datasets also show the importance of local and regional phenomena, such as bolide impacts, the e?ects of terrestrial input and paleogeography, syndepositonal tectonics, and high-frequency accommodaton drivers. These add complexity to the carbonate stratgraphic record when superimposed on global trends. The unique occurrence of well-studied and pristnely preserved reefal carbonate outcrop and subsurface datasets, ranging across the globe from Australia to Canada, allows for a detailed examinaton of Devonian carbonate systems from a global perspectve and the opportunity to develop well-constrained predictve relatonships and conceptual models. Advances in the understanding of the Devonian carbonate system is advantageous considering, not only the classic conventonal reservoirs such as the pinnacle reefs of the Alberta Basin, but also emerging conventonal reservoirs in Eurasia, and many unconventonal plays in North America. The papers in New Advances in Devonian Carbonates provide updated stratgraphic frameworks for classic Devonian datasets using integrated correlaton approaches; new or synthesized frameworks for less studied basins, reservoirs, or areas; and discussions on the complex interplay of extrinsic and intrinsic controls that drive carbonate architectures, productvity, and distributon. The 13 papers in this special publicaton include outcrop and subsurface studies of Middle to Upper Devonian carbonates of western Canada, the Lennard Shelf of the Canning Basin, Western Australia, and the western USA.
