Uplifted sedimentary basins such as the Western Canada (Alberta) Sedimentary Basin (Hitchon, ) and the Palo Duro Basin (Bassett and Bentley, ; Senger et al., ) are currently being flushed by gravity-driven groundwater flow.

The wealth of petroleum has made the Middle East one of the most actively explored regions of the world. The volume of geological, geophysical and geochemical data collected by the petroleum industry in recent decades is enormous. The Middle East may be a unique region in the world where the volume of subsurface data and information exceeds that based on surface outcrop.3/5(3).

The Southeast River Basins study area lies within the Blue Ridge, Piedmont, and Coastal Plain provinces. In the approximately 77 percent of the study area that lies within the Coastal Plain province, practically all fresh-water supplies are obtained from aquifers made up of sedimentary rocks.

Aquifer depths within these basins can range from a few hundred to thousands of meters. Where aquifers outcrop they are recharged by direct infiltration of rainfall, flood events and, where intersected by rivers, river bed seepage.

SEDIMENTARY BASINS 1. INTRODUCTION The official definition of a sedimentary basin is: a low area in the Earth’s crust, of tectonic origin, in which sediments accumulate. Sedimentary basins range in size from as small as hundreds of meters to large parts of ocean basins. The essential element of the concept is tectonic creation of relief, to.

In some places, other, sometimes more productive, aquifers underlie those mapped. Only small areas of some aquifers may be shown on the map because they are covered in many places by other aquifers closer to the land surface.
