Using well and seismic data, the authors demonstrate that the m Tertiary carbonate section in the Maldives offers new concepts in carbonate modeling, as well as Carbonate concepts from the Maldives model of vast spatial extent.

Significant inferences can be made in the Maldive model with relation to Pliocene-Pliestocene glacial sea-level by: Carbonate Concepts from the Maldives, Indian Ocean. A combination of ground truth, provided by a single exploration well, and geometries apparent on seismic lines, provides new insight on the geologic development of the Maldives.

The single exploration well documents the occurrence of more than m of Tertiary carbonate rock overlying volcanic basement. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Purdy, Edward G. Carbonate concepts from the Maldives, Indian Ocean. Tulsa, Okla., U.S.A.: American Association of.

The Maldives carbonate system tells a fascinating story of the establishment, growth, Indian Ocean book development of this giant isolated carbonate platform through intervals of partial demise and recovery.

Superb and dense seismic grids tied to information from several wells reveal spectacular seismic facies and stratal geometries based on which a full picture of its platform. Introducing the Maldives The Maldives is an archipelago comprising of 26 magnificent atolls settled in the Arabian Sea of the Indian Ocean.

The atolls spread out on a kilometer square area placing the Maldives among the world’s most geographically scattered countries.

The Maldives is the smallest Asian country. Maldives is a small island found in the Indian Ocean, most precisely the republic of Maldives is situates ideally in the South Asian island country, in the Arabian Sea.

It is near the Southwest of Sri Lanka and India. It composes of 26 ring shaped atolls which actually starts from the north Ihavandhippolu atoll to the south, Addu City. That didn’t happen. The Indian Ocean did not swallow the Maldives island chain as predicted by government officials in the s.

In Septemberthe Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported a “gradual rise in average sea level is threatening to completely cover this Indian Ocean nation of small islands within the next 30 years,” based on predictions made by. Carbonate concepts from the Maldives, Indian Ocean.

More than 2 km of carbonate accretion over the volcanic basement of the Maldives since the Eocene has been controlled by an interplay of subsidence and sea-level fluctuations (Purdy and Bertram, ; Aubert and Droxler, ), causing phases of aggradation, progradation, retrogradation, and drowning.

The Maldive basement appears on seismic profiles as a volcanic plateau generated during two distinct eruptive phases separated by an episode of tectonic deformation.

Maldives, independent island country in the north-central Indian Ocean. It consists of about 1, low-lying small coral islands and sandbanks, only some of which are inhabited, the most populous of which is Male. The country’s largest industries include fishing, tourism, and. observed carbon distributions provide insight into carbonate remineralization in the Indian Ocean.

[4] The relationship between DIC and TA defines the inorganic carbon system of the oceans. With a proper knowledge of the carbonate dissociation constants one can use DIC and TA to accurately calculate the concentrations of all the carbonate species.
