This comprehensive, beautifully illustrated, multi-disciplinary book summarizes the geologic record of 60 worldwide ancient and modern lake basins and their lacustrine deposits. The data and observations presented here provide critical insights into the formation and evolution of lake basins, their petroleum potential, and the complex interactions between tectonic and climatic signals recorded in their sediments.

Lake Basins through Space and Time will be valuable to geoscientists from a wide spectrum of disciplines. Petroleum explorationists will benefit from a new unifying model that clearly relates the hydrocarbon potential of a lake basin to its tectonic, stratigraphic, and geochemical framework. Geologists concerned with paleoclimate reconstructions will use the rich data and new insights, which lead to better differentiation of tectonic and climatic signals contained within lacustrine sediments.

These new basin summaries continue the work begun in a previous volume by the same renowned editors (Gierlowski-Kordesch and Kelts, 1994).
