Geology of Iraq

Appendix tables of basic data of oil fields and drilled structures


Synopsis

This book is written by 16 experienced geologists with first hand knowledge of the geology of Iraq and deals with all aspects of the country’s geology. The aims of the book are to present a synthesis of the geological history of Iraq and a description of its economic geology, and to provide a key reference for both students and professional geologists. It updates the text books of Buday (1980) and Buday and Jassim (1987). The book includes previously unpublished information collected during the regional geological surveys of Iraq carried out from 1970 to 1990. Each chapter has been extensively edited to create a concise text. The stratigraphy of Iraq is placed within a consistent tectonostratigraphic framework.

The formation of basement of the Arabian Plate in Late Precambrian time is discussed. The fabric of the basement has strongly influenced the Phanerozoic evolution of Iraq. A new model for the plate tectonic evolution of the north eastern margin of the Arabian Plate is introduced. The tectonic framework of Iraq is described based on regional outcrop, subsurface and potential field data. Tectonic units of the Stable Shelf, Unstable Shelf and the Zagros Suture are defined. The chapter on Seismicity describes the history of seismic monitoring in Iraq, micro and macroseismicity, historical seismicity, seismotectonics and seismic hazards.

The stratigraphy of Iraq is covered in seven chapters using the Arabian Plate Megasequence scheme of Sharland et al (2001). The megasequences are subdivided into sequences. The lithostratigraphic units within each sequence are described. Summary stratigraphic charts, isopach and palaeogeographic maps, and stratigraphic charts are provided. New stratigraphic information is included based on the results of the mapping of the Western Desert of Iraq. The Quaternary geology of Iraq is described in detail. The tectonostratigraphy of the Zagros Suture Zone and its magmatic and metamorphic history are reviewed and interpreted in a plate tectonic context involving the opening and closing of the Neo-Tethys Ocean.

The hydrogeology of Iraq is interpreted in detail because of its future importance for the livelihood of Iraq. The petroleum systems and infrastructure of Iraq are described. Finally the distribution and origin of the mineral resources of Iraq is discussed. The book has over 200 coloured figures and plates with summary table of statistics of oil fields and drilled structures.
