Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"In this new book, Warren … extensively reviews nearly all important evaporite problems and aspects debated in recent literature, and also presents his own concepts and opinions. … The book thus contains a wealth of information on both evaporites and related earth-science aspects. … The book is also very well illustrated. … Warren … makes the text interesting and simple. The text is generally easy to read and to understand … . the book is of value for a wide group of readers … ." (Maciej Babel, Journal of Sedimentary Research, February, 2007)

"The monograph presents a summary of exploitative methods in conventional and solution mining of evaporites and offers a comprehensive synthesis of the low temperature (sedimentary) realm of evaporite evolution as well as a comprehensive discussion of the role of evaporites in hydrocarbon generation and trapping. … Included are several subjects on related different branches of science in a highly academic level. … The book is for earth science professionals, sedimentologists, oil and gas explorers, mining and petroleum geologists, as well as environmental geologists." (Fakhry A. Assaad, Environmental Geology, Vol. 52 (7), 2007)
