The thermal, mechanical, and chemical evolution of a sedimentary basin exerts important controls on porosity and permeability of reservoir rocks. Oxygen isotope ratios of individual diagenetic cements record evidence of this history, but cannot be analyzed accurately by conventional techniques. Recent improvements for in situ analysis by ion microprobe provide high precision and accuracy at a scale of 5–10 μm. In combination with cathodoluminescence imaging, in situ analysis of δ 18 O (quartz… CONTINUE READING
