Application of Markov chain and entropy analysis to lithologic succession –an example from the Post-Rift Cretaceous and Tertiary Formations, Kombe-Nsepe area, Douala Subbasin, Cameroon
      Dinga Elvis Tita and Adrien Lamire Djomeni
Abstract: The arrangement of lithofacies of the Cretaceous and Tertiary Formations of the Kombe-Nsepe area southeastern part of the Douala sub basin has been examined by statistical techniques. A statistical approach by a modified Markov process model and entropy function is used to prove that the Formations of the Kombe-Nsepe area developed distinct cyclicities during deposition. The lithologies have been condensed into five facies states viz. Dark/grey shale, inter-bedded fine grained sandstone and shale, coarse to medium-grained sandstone, conglomerate faciesand carbonate and argillaceous shale for the convenience of statistical analyses.
