Book Description:

Biomarkers are compounds found in crude oil with structures inherited from once-living organisms. They persist in oil spills, refinery products and archaeological artifacts, and can be used to identify the origin, geological age and environmental conditions prevelant during their formation and alteration. The two volumes of the Biomarker Guide detail the origin of petroleum, technology for its analysis and key parameters for interpretation. It will be an invaluable resource for geologists, petroleum geochemists, biogeochemists, environmental and forensic scientists, natural product chemists and archaeologists.
