AbstractThis data Open File provides back-scattered electron (BSE) images of diagenetic cements from reservoir sandstones in the Scotian Basin that have not been previously released in other Open Files, together with data on mineral chemistry. These data are of interest to geologists concerned with diagenesis and reservoir quality in this offshore petroleum basin.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Images showing textures and chemical analyses of diagenetic minerals that influence porosity in Scotian Basin reservoir rocks.
