"This 2nd edition is certainly an awaited text book and a welcome update that can be recommended without any hesitation to both undergraduate and graduate students as well as the practitioner in the field." Journal of Soils and Sediments, November 2005Synopsis:
"Basin Analysis" is an up-to-date overview of the essential processes of the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins, and their implications for the development of hydrocarbon resources. The new edition features: a consideration of the fundamental physical state of the lithosphere; a discussion on the major types of lithospheric deformation relevant to basin development - stretching and flexure; a new chapter on the effects of mantle dynamics; and radically revised chapters on the basin-fill.It also features a new chapter on the erosional engine for sediment delivery to basins, reflecting the massive and exciting advances in this area in the last decade; expansion of the techniques used in approaching problems in basin analysis; updated chapters on subsidence analysis and measurements of thermal maturity of organic and non-organic components of the basin-fill; and new material on thermochronological and exposure dating tools. It also includes the important petroleum system concept in the updated section on the application to the petroleum play. To run the programs you will need a copy of Matlab 6 or 7.
