Computers & Geology, Volume 2: Recent Advances in Geomathematics: An International Symposium focuses on the advancements of methodologies, processes, and approaches in geomathematics.
The selection first offers information on the multivariate analysis of compositional data of bioclastic carbonate sediments from the Lady Musgrave Reef and Great Barrier Reef in Australia and engineering evaluation of seabed sediments by cluster analysis. Topics include geotechnical mapping, survey, and numerical analysis. The manuscript then ponders on multivariate analysis in the characterization of limestone units based on minor- and trace-element contents; influence on the chemical composition of Pennsylvanian limestones in Kansas; and multivariate analysis of allometry using morphometric measurements.
The publication elaborates on the basic concepts and advantages of formalized stratigraphy and distance dependence of stratigraphic correlation. Discussions focus on definition and measures for the accuracy of correlation, measurements on natural sections, problems in traditional stratigraphy, and formalized type of problems and solutions. Observations on the statistical properties of polarity reversals, three-dimensional interpolation, and computerized modeling for shape analysis in geology are also mentioned.
The selection is a valuable reference for geologists and readers interested in geomathematics.
