The interactions of wave, tide and fluvial processes at the shoreline produce architecturally complex mixed-process deposits. Depositional models commonly used for subsurface modelling however, tend to be oversimplified end-member wave-, tide- or fluvial-dominated scenarios. As a result, existing geometrical databases tend to be oversimplified and have limited predictive capability for sand body geometry and heterogeneity in the subsurface.

We present herein a classification system specifically tailored for mixed-process marginal marine reservoirs. The architectural classification scheme integrates the scales of small-scale sedimentology (e.g. core) through to regional sequence stratigraphy (e.g. wireline-log correlation, reflection seismic). The classification also applies to modern deposits, which allows for direct comparison of dimensions of architectural units between modern and ancient settings. Case studies are used to illustrate how the classification can be used across both modern and ancient mixed-process systems, and its applications to subsurface reservoir characterisation and modelling.
