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.
  • Radically revised chapters on the basin-fill.
  • 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.
  • New material on thermochronological and exposure dating tools.
  • Inclusion of the important petroleum system concept in the updated section on the application to the petroleum play.
