deposition

Out-of-court testimony under oath by a witness or other party either during the pendency of a lawsuit or in order to preserve evidence in the event of a lawsuit.The testimony is recorded and transcribed by a court reporter, and the deponent (the person giving the deposition testimony) then signs the transcript to confirm that it is a true and accurate record of the questions asked and the answers given.Deposition testimony is admissible in court under some circumstances if the deponent is unavailable to testify.Especially when dealing with elderly persons,if there is some dispute over title to real property or the effects of adverse possession, it is good practice to obtain deposition testimony.

beginning with an overview of the seismic reflection method in general and its limitations, two major sections focus on the description of seismic stratigraphic techniques themselves--including a manual of basic observations, terminology and classification of seismic facies units and a chapter on well calibration and control--and on the depositional environment and facies interpretation.
6, formula given by Folk (1968) is one of the most useful methods to determine the nature of the sorting of sediments; its application provides information regarding the effectiveness of the depositional medium in separating the grains of different classes.
Thus the gray shales do not represent a uniform depositional environment, but instead environmental conditions vary in a relatively short distance such as between Location A and B.
