    Ramadan Experience and Behavior: Relationships with Religious Orientation Among Pakistani Muslims.Ziasma Haneef Khan & P. J. Watson - 2010 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 32 (2):149-168.
    Within the Ideological Surround Model of the social sciences and religion, so-called “universal” perspectives within the psychology of religion can dialogically clarify and be clarified by the “particular” elements of Muslim commitment. This study developed new scales for operationalizing the experience and behavior of Pakistani Muslims during Ramadan. In a sample of university students, one set of experiential factors apparently facilitated, whereas another interfered with the practices of Ramadan. Intrinsic and Extrinsic Personal Religious Orientations correlated with greater and (...)

    The Challenges and Future of Applied Islamic Ethics Discourse: A Radical Reform?Tariq Ramadan - 2013 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 34 (2):105-115.
    In this paper, I explore the concept of applied Islamic ethics, the facts, its challenges, and its future. I aim to highlight some of the deep-rooted issues that Muslims have faced historically and continue to experience today as they apply religious guidance to their daily lives. I consider the causes and rationale behind the current situation and look beyond to suggest ways in which this may evolve, calling for a radical reform. Muslims throughout the world are experiencing a deepening crisis (...)

    Does Ramadan Affect Happiness? Evidence From Turkey.Zeynep B. Ugur - 2018 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 40 (2-3):163-175.
    The lunar month of Ramadan is an important time period for Muslims around the world. In this study, we examine whether Ramadan brings happiness to individuals. For this purpose, we conducted a survey once before Ramadan, three times during Ramadan, and once after Ramadan. Our results show that with every week in Ramadan, a small boost of happiness is reported. Yet, two weeks after Ramadan, people seem to return to their baseline level of (...)

    Characterizing a Turbidite System in Canterbury Basin, New Zealand, Using Seismic Attributes and Distance-Preserving Self-Organizing Maps.Tao Zhao, Jing Zhang, Fangyu Li & Kurt J. Marfurt - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (1):SB79-SB89.
    Recent developments in seismic attributes and seismic facies classification techniques have greatly enhanced the capability of interpreters to delineate and characterize features that are not prominent in conventional 3D seismic amplitude volumes. The use of appropriate seismic attributes that quantify the characteristics of different geologic facies can accelerate and partially automate the interpretation process. Self-organizing maps are a popular seismic facies classification tool that extract similar patterns embedded with multiple seismic attribute volumes. By preserving the distance in the input data (...)

  10. Tariq Ramadan Vs. Daniel Cohn-Bendit or Why a European Model of Society Based on Weak Citizenship Is Not Such a Good Idea.Liana Giorgi - 2009 - European Journal of Social Theory 12 (4):465-481.
    The boundaries, openness and character of the future European society will crucially depend on the degree and scope of identity politics. Religion, culture and nationality remain strong reference frameworks for individuals in their inter-personal but also political relations and tend, in practice, to favour weak rather than strong forms of citizenship. Whether this is a viable model for large and diverse democratic societies is an old debate known primarily from the discussions and theory on multiculturalism. How this debate is played (...)

    Anisotropy Signatures in the Cooper Basin of Australia: Stress Versus Fractures.Stephanie Tyiasning & Dennis Cooke - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (2):SE51-SE61.
    Theoretically, vertical fractures and stress can create horizontal transverse isotropy anisotropy on 3D seismic data. Determining if seismic HTI anisotropy is caused by stress or fractures can be important for mapping and understanding reservoir quality, especially in unconventional reservoirs. Our study area was the Cooper Basin of Australia. The Cooper Basin is Australia’s largest onshore oil and gas producing basin that consists of shale gas, basin-centered tight gas, and deep coal play. The Cooper Basin has (...)

    Statistical Inference of Odd Fréchet Inverse Lomax Distribution with Applications.Ramadan A. ZeinEldin, Muhammad Ahsan ul Haq, Sharqa Hashmi, Mahmoud Elsehety & M. Elgarhy - 2020 - Complexity 2020:1-20.
    In this article, we propose and study a new three-parameter distribution, called the odd Fréchet inverse Lomax distribution, derived by combining the odd Fréchet-G family and the inverse Lomax distribution. Since Fréchet is a continuous distribution with wide applicability in extreme value theory, the new model contains these properties as well as the characteristics of the inverse Lomax distribution which make it more flexible and provide a good alternative for some well-known lifetime distributions. We initially present a linear representation of (...)

    Carbonate Karst Reservoirs of the Tarim Basin, Northwest China: Types, Features, Origins, and Implications for Hydrocarbon Exploration.Wenzhi Zhao, Anjiang Shen, Zhanfeng Qiao, Jianfeng Zheng & Xiaofang Wang - 2014 - Interpretation: SEG 2 (3):SF65-SF90.
    Karst reservoirs are important exploration targets in marine carbonates of hydrocarbon-bearing basins around the world. In the Tarim Basin of northwest China, four types of carbonate karst reservoirs were delineated using data from more than 200 wells, including cores, thin sections, wireline logs, drilling logs, and production data; these were supplemented with seismic and other data. The four types of karst reservoirs described were all formed by meteoric water circulation but not limited in the vadose or phreatic zones, including (...)

    Seismic Chronostratigraphy and Basin Development at a Mid-Cretaceous Intrashelf Basin Margin.Stanley Rich Wharton - 2015 - Interpretation: SEG 3 (2):SN1-SN20.
    The Mid-Cretaceous Wasia Formation represents one of the most productive hydrocarbon carbonate sequences in the Middle East. In Saudi Arabia, limited integrated studies have assessed the complexity and spatial distribution of its reservoir depositional systems near to an intrashelf basin margin. This study was focused on an assessment of its 3D seismic chronostratigraphy by integrating key well and seismic data to evaluate the gross depositional history of the mixed carbonate-clastic system. A seismic chronostratigraphy approach was introduced to assess the (...)

    Attribute Expression of Fault-Controlled Karst — Fort Worth Basin, Texas: A Tutorial.Jie Qi, Bo Zhang, Huailai Zhou & Kurt Marfurt - 2014 - Interpretation: SEG 2 (3):SF91-SF110.
    Much of seismic interpretation is based on pattern recognition, such that experienced interpreters are able to extract subtle geologic features that a new interpreter may easily overlook. Seismic pattern recognition is based on the identification of changes in amplitude, phase, frequency, dip, continuity, and reflector configuration. Seismic attributes, which providing quantitative measures that can be subsequently used in risk analysis and data mining, partially automate the pattern recognition problem by extracting key statistical, geometric, or kinematic components of the 3D seismic (...)

    Law as a Vanishing Mediator in the Theological Ethics of Tariq Ramadan.Andrew F. March - 2011 - European Journal of Political Theory 10 (2):177-201.
    Tariq Ramadan’s recent book, Radical Reform: Islamic Ethics and Liberation, boldly proclaims the need for Muslims to completely rethink the very meaning of Islamic law, traditionally the preeminent Islamic normative discourse and a primary distinguishing feature of Islam from other religions, replacing it with a more ecumenical applied ethics. He begins the book by rejecting the moderate reformist methods adopted in his previous books as insufficient for the ‘radical reform’ of their epistemologies and mentalities which he believes contemporary Muslims (...)

    Natural Deduction for Non-Classical Logics.David Basin, Seán Matthews & Luca Viganò - 1998 - Studia Logica 60 (1):119-160.
    We present a framework for machine implementation of families of non-classical logics with Kripke-style semantics. We decompose a logic into two interacting parts, each a natural deduction system: a base logic of labelled formulae, and a theory of labels characterizing the properties of the Kripke models. By appropriate combinations we capture both partial and complete fragments of large families of non-classical logics such as modal, relevance, and intuitionistic logics. Our approach is modular and supports uniform proofs of soundness, completeness and (...)

    La taqiyya et le jeûne du Ramadan: quelques réflexions ismaéliennes sur le sens ésotérique de la charia.Daniel De Smet - 2013 - Al-Qantara: Revista de Estudios Árabes 34 (2):357-386.
    En cet article nous analysons les notions de taqiyya et kitmān telles qu’elles ont été élaborées par des auteurs ismaéliens des 10e et 11e siècles. Tout au long du présent « cycle d’occultation », la « science véritable » est voilée sous la lettre des textes révélés et des lois qui en découlent. Seuls les imāms et leurs disciples ont accès à cette science, mais ils n’ont pas le droit de la divulguer au tout venant. Cette obligation de garder le (...)

    The Use of Geologic Expression Workflows for Basin Scale Reconnaissance: A Case Study From the Exmouth Subbasin, North Carnarvon Basin, Northwestern Australia.N. J. McArdle, D. Iacopini, M. A. KunleDare & G. S. Paton - 2014 - Interpretation: SEG 2 (1):SA163-SA177.
    The focus of this study is to demonstrate how seismic attributes can be used in the interpretation workflow to rapidly obtain a high-resolution view of the geology that is imaged within a seismic data set. To demonstrate the efficacy of seismic attribute analysis to basin scale reconnaissance, we apply a workflow to seismic data sets from the Exmouth Subbasin, northwestern Australia, with the aim of determining the geologic expression of the subsurface. Of specific interest are Barrow Group Jurassic and (...)

    Labelled Modal Logics: Quantifiers. [REVIEW]David Basin, Seán Matthews & Luca Viganò - 1998 - Journal of Logic, Language and Information 7 (3):237-263.
    In previous work we gave an approach, based on labelled natural deduction, for formalizing proof systems for a large class of propositional modal logics that includes K, D, T, B, S4, S4.2, KD45, and S5. Here we extend this approach to quantified modal logics, providing formalizations for logics with varying, increasing, decreasing, or constant domains. The result is modular with respect to both properties of the accessibility relation in the Kripke frame and the way domains of individuals change between worlds. (...)

    Geochemical Evidence for Oil and Gas Expulsion in Triassic Lacustrine Organic-Rich Mudstone, Ordos Basin, China.Tongwei Zhang, Xiangzeng Wang, Jianfeng Zhang, Xun Sun, Kitty L. Milliken, Stephen C. Ruppel & Daniel Enriquez - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):SF41-SF61.
    Forty-six core samples were collected from a deep well that penetrated organic-rich layers of the Chang 7, 8, and 9 members of the Yanchang Formation in the Ordos Basin. Tests for total organic content, Rock-Eval pyrolysis, X-ray diffraction mineralogy, and molecular composition of gases released from rock crushing were conducted. Analytical results indicate that TOC and clay contents are elevated. The organic matter -rich mudstone in the Triassic Yanchang Fm suggests good-to-excellent source potential for oil generation. Its thermal maturity (...)

    The Late Triassic Yanchang Formation is a major target of drilling for hydrocarbons in the Ordos Basin. Although most of the early focus on this thick succession of lacustrine rocks has been the dominant deltaic sandstones and siltstones, which act as local reservoirs of oil and gas, more recent consideration has been given to the organic-rich mudstone source rocks. We used modern chemostratigraphic analysis to define vertical facies successions in two closely spaced cores through the Chang 7 Member, the (...)

    Hydrocarbon Storage Space Within Lacustrine Gas Shale of the Triassic Yanchang Formation, Ordos Basin, China.Xiangzeng Wang, Lixia Zhang, Chengfu Jiang & Bojiang Fan - 2015 - Interpretation: SEG 3 (2):SJ15-SJ23.
    The Triassic Yanchang Formation lacustrine shale is a source of conventional oil accumulation in the Ordos Basin, China. The Yanchang Formation, a hybrid system of organic-rich shale, interbedded silty shale, and siltstone, is believed to be a potential unconventional oil and gas play. Our crossdisciplinary investigation of the storage space included the outcrop description, core observation, thin sections, and scanning electron microscope pore imaging. We evaluated the results from these techniques to reveal that the storage space within the Yanchang (...)

    Stress Perturbations Around the Deep Salt Structure of Kuqa Depression in the Tarim Basin.Mingwen Wang, Yunqiang Sun, Gang Luo, Rui Zhang & Cheng Chang - 2019 - Interpretation 7 (3):T647-T656.
    Drilling into and around salt bodies can present different kinds of geohazards, such as shrinkage or stuck and crushed casings, resulting in well abandonment and huge economic losses. These engineering disasters are more likely to happen when ignoring the stress perturbations caused by the geomechanical interactions between the salt and surrounding sediments. For a better understanding of the stress perturbations, we use a commercial finite-element software, Abaqus, to build a 2D plane-strain finite-element model of the salt structure of Kuqa depression (...)

    Comparative Analysis of Shale Reservoir Characteristics in the Wufeng-Longmaxi and Niutitang Formations: A Case Study of Wells JY1 and TX1 in the Southeastern Sichuan Basin and its Neighboring Areas, Southwestern China. [REVIEW]Ruyue Wang, Zongquan Hu, Chuanxiang Sun, Zhongbao Liu, Chenchen Zhang, Bo Gao, Wei Du, Jianhua Zhao & Wenhao Tang - 2018 - Interpretation: SEG 6 (4):SN31-SN45.
    A systematic comparative analysis of shale reservoir characteristics of the Wufeng-Longmaxi and Niutitang Formations in southeastern Sichuan Basin and its neighboring areas was conducted with respect to mineralogy, organic geochemistry, pore structure, methane sorption, brittleness, and fractures. Results indicate that organic matter -hosted pores that are hundreds of nanometers to micrometers in size in the Longmaxi shale are well-developed in migrated OM rather than in the in situ OM, and they are the dominant reservoir spaces. Furthermore, the total organic (...)

    Seismic Reconstruction of the in Situ Anisotropic Stress Field for Caprock Integrity in the Athabasca Oil-Sands Basin, Canada.Draga A. Talinga & Carmen C. Dumitrescu - 2019 - Interpretation 7 (1):T221-T229.
    In the Athabasca Basin of Alberta, Canada, the Lower Cretaceous McMurray Formation reservoir is overlain by the Clearwater Formation, a regionally continuous layer composed predominantly of shales with interbedded mudstones. The shales form the reservoir caprock and have the role of blocking the vertical migration of the steam from thermal oil production by confining the stresses and the deformations. We have developed a new method for the 3D seismic reconstruction of the anisotropic stress field, which accounts for the formation (...)

  36. A Basin-Scale Perspective on Cenomanian-Turonian (Cretaceous) Depositional Systems, Greater Gulf of Mexico.John W. Snedden, Jon Virdell, Timothy L. Whiteaker & Patty Ganey-Curry - 2016 - Interpretation 4 (1):SC1-SC22.
    Recent exploration discoveries have extended the play fairway for Ceno-Turonian age sandstones from traditional onshore fields into the ultradeep water of the Gulf of Mexico, necessitating a reevaluation of the basin-scale depositional paleogeography. The Eagle Ford-Tuscaloosa supersequence is a long-duration aggregate of sand-prone depositional sequences, organic-rich shales, and shallow to deepwater carbonates. Tectonic drivers may help to explain how the Tuscaloosa depositional transport systems were able to surmount the prominent shelf-margin reef barrier that previously trapped so much sand in (...)

    A truly integrated velocity model building method has been developed and applied for seismic imaging. Geophysical basin modeling is designed to mitigate seismic data limitations and constrains the velocity model building by taking advantage of information provided by geologic and geophysical input. The information from geologic concepts and understanding is quantified using basin model simulations to model primary control fields for rock properties, temperature, and effective stress. Transformation of the basin model fields to velocity is made by (...)

    Liquid Hydrocarbon Characterization of the Lacustrine Yanchang Formation, Ordos Basin, China: Organic-Matter Source Variation and Thermal Maturity.Xun Sun, Quansheng Liang, Chengfu Jiang, Daniel Enriquez, Tongwei Zhang & Paul Hackley - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):SF225-SF242.
    Source-rock samples from the Upper Triassic Yanchang Formation in the Ordos Basin of China were geochemically characterized to determine variations in depositional environments, organic-matter source, and thermal maturity. Total organic carbon content varies from 4 wt% to 10 wt% in the Chang 7, Chang 8, and Chang 9 members — the three OM-rich shale intervals. The Chang 7 has the highest TOC and hydrogen index values, and it is considered the best source rock in the formation. Geochemical evidence indicates (...)

    Seismic-Petrophysical Reservoir Characterization in the Northern Part of the Chicontepec Basin, Mexico.Supratik Sarkar, Sumit Verma & Kurt J. Marfurt - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (3):T403-T417.
    The Chicontepec Formation in east-central Mexico is comprised of complex unconventional reservoirs consisting of low-permeability disconnected turbidite reservoir facies. Hydraulic fracturing increases permeability and joins these otherwise tight reservoirs. We use a recently acquired 3D seismic survey and well control to divide the Chicontepec reservoir interval in the northern part of the basin into five stratigraphic units, equivalent to global third-order seismic sequences. By combining well-log and core information with principles of seismic geomorphology, we are able to map deepwater (...)

    Seismic Expression of Delta to Deep-Lake Transition and its Control on Lithology, Total Organic Content, Brittleness, and Shale-Gas Sweet Spots in Triassic Yanchang Formation, Southern Ordos Basin, China.Hongliu Zeng, Wei Wang & Quansheng Liang - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):SF1-SF14.
    The Triassic Yanchang Formation is currently a hot spot for lacustrine shale-gas exploration in the Ordos Basin, China. A seismic-sedimentological study using a newly acquired 3D survey was conducted to advance the interpretation and prediction of the shale-gas reservoirs. The seismic volume was converted into a log-lithology volume at the thin-bed level. The inverted acoustic impedance volume was stratal sliced to extract seismic geomorphologic information. Deltaic facies and depositional history were interpreted using lithologic and planform morphology of seismic attributes (...)

    Pore Characteristics of Lacustrine Mudstones From the Cretaceous Qingshankou Formation, Songliao Basin.Min Wang, Shuangfang Lu, Wenbiao Huang & Wei Liu - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (3):T373-T386.
    Cretaceous Qingshankou mudstone of lacustrine origin is the major source rock for conventional hydrocarbon currently being produced in the Daqing and Jilin oilfields of the Songliao Basin, which is one of the largest continental basins in the world. Therefore, elucidating the geochemical and petrological characteristics of the [Formula: see text] mudstone is important to help determine its quality as an economically viable source for shale oil production. In our study, eight dark mudstone core samples from the [Formula: see text] (...)

    Generative Topographic Mapping for Seismic Facies Estimation of a Carbonate Wash, Veracruz Basin, Southern Mexico.Atish Roy, Araceli S. Romero-Peláez, Tim J. Kwiatkowski & Kurt J. Marfurt - 2014 - Interpretation: SEG 2 (1):SA31-SA47.
    Seismic facies estimation is a critical component in understanding the stratigraphy and lithology of hydrocarbon reservoirs. With the adoption of 3D technology and increasing survey size, manual techniques of facies classification have become increasingly time consuming. Besides, the numbers of seismic attributes have increased dramatically, providing increasingly accurate measurements of reflector morphology. However, these seismic attributes add multiple “dimensions” to the data greatly expanding the amount of data to be analyzed. Principal component analysis and self-organizing maps are popular techniques to (...)

    Characterization of Gas Hydrate Distribution Using Conventional 3D Seismic Data in the Pearl River Mouth Basin, South China Sea.Xiujuan Wang, Jin Qian, Timothy S. Collett, Hesheng Shi, Shengxiong Yang, Chengzhi Yan, Yuanping Li, Zhenzhen Wang & Duanxin Chen - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (1):SA25-SA37.
    A new 3D seismic reflection data volume acquired in 2012 has allowed for the detailed mapping and characterization of gas hydrate distribution in the Pearl River Mouth Basin in the South China Sea. Previous studies of core and logging data showed that gas hydrate occurrence at high concentrations is controlled by the presence of relatively coarse-grained sediment and the upward migration of thermogenic gas from the deeper sediment section into the overlying gas hydrate stability zone ; however, the spatial (...)

    The Whole-Aperture Pore-Structure Characteristics of Marine-Continental Transitional Shale Facies of the Taiyuan and Shanxi Formations in the Qinshui Basin, North China.Jiyuan Wang & Shaobin Guo - 2019 - Interpretation 7 (2):T547-T563.
    To systematically study the whole-aperture pore-structure characteristics of the marine-continental transitional shale facies in the Upper Palaeozoic Taiyuan and Shanxi Formations of the Qinshui Basin, we have collected a total of 11 samples for high-pressure mercury intrusion, low-pressure gas adsorption, nuclear magnetic resonance, and field-emission scanning electron microscopy with argon-ion polishing experiments to determine the pore morphology and distribution characteristics of shale samples in detail and to perform quantitative analyses. Then compared the pore-development characteristics of the Taiyuan Formation samples (...)

    Exploration Application of Seismic Amplitude Analysis in the Krishna-Godavari Basin, East Coast of India.Ram Janma Singh - 2014 - Interpretation: SEG 2 (4):SP5-SP20.
    Seismic amplitude anomalies are attractive exploration targets in the Krishna-Godavari Basin offshore India. These bright spots mostly have very high amplitudes, so confident interpretations have been possible. We distinguished between hydrocarbon-bearing sands, water-bearing sands, and high-impedance nonreservoir bodies. Also, we mapped channel architecture and accurately predicted reservoir thickness. Strong amplitude anomalies, prospective seismic character based on an understanding of data phase and polarity, flat spots, and amplitude versus offset have all provided valuable evidence.

    Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy and Sedimentary Evolution of Carbonate Reservoirs in the Sinian Dengying Formation, Middle Sichuan Basin, Southwest China.Guangfa Zhong, Yalin Li & Dingjin Liu - 2013 - Interpretation: SEG 1 (1):SA21-SA34.
    The Sinian Dengying Formation in the Sichuan Basin, southwest China, mainly consisting of dolomites, is one of the most ancient gas-producing series in the world. During the past half-century, gas exploration in the formation has been largely based on the lithostratigraphic correlation, but a regional correlation scheme of time significance is usually insufficient, resulting in the difficulty of lateral correlation of strata between gas fields. Aiming to overcome the problem, we completed an interpretation of about 2500-km 2D regional seismic (...)

    Spatial and Temporal Evolution of Cenozoic Carbonate Platforms on the Continental Margins of the South China Sea: Response to Opening of the Ocean Basin.Shiguo Wu, Xinyuan Zhang, Zhen Yang, Tuoyu Wu, Jinwei Gao & Dawei Wang - 2016 - Interpretation: SEG 4 (3):SP1-SP19.
    Widespread and tremendously thick Cenozoic carbonate sequences are present along the margins of the South China Sea. However, most of the sequences have been drowned since the Late Miocene. The stratigraphic architecture of the carbonate platforms in the SCS can provide information on the tectonic evolution of the ocean basin. Based on 2D/3D seismic, well and regional geologic data, we have interpreted the Cenozoic SCS carbonate platforms along the continental margins. The carbonate platforms developed during rifting and initiated on (...)

    Chemostratigraphic Insights Into Fluvio-Lacustrine Deposition, Yanchang Formation, Upper Triassic, Ordos Basin, China.Harry Rowe, Xiangzeng Wang, Bojiang Fan, Tongwei Zhang, Stephen C. Ruppel, Kitty L. Milliken, Robert Loucks, Ying Shen, Jianfeng Zhang, Quansheng Liang & Evan Sivil - 2017 - Interpretation: SEG 5 (2):SF149-SF165.
    A chemostratigraphic study of a 300 m long core recovered from the southeastern central Ordos depocenter reveals thick intervals of fine-grained, organic-rich lacustrine strata, interpreted to represent deepwater deposition under meromictic conditions during lake highstand phases, interspersed with thick intervals of arkosic sandstones, reflective of fluvio-deltaic deposition during lake lowstand phases. Along with elevated concentrations of %Al, traditionally a proxy for clay content, maximum total-organic-carbon values in the deepwater lacustrine facies reach 8%, with average values of approximately 3%. The fine-grained, (...)
