A selection of 19 papers from an international conference in Gustow, (then) East Germany, June 1990. They discuss the application of computer methods to the exploration and exploitation of oil and gas, coal, and other energy and mineral resources. Among the topics are differential compaction and structural genesis, the mass-balanced reconstruction of paleogeology, and several case studies from specific sites. Well illustrated. Annotation c.
