Overview

Sediments from the world's ocean floors and other water body basins hold a wealth of information about organic life as we know it. Organic Matter: Productivity, Accumulation, and Preservation in Recent and Ancient Sediments addresses focusing on the production, accumulation, and preservation of organic matter in marine and lacustrine sediments. Contributors to this important monograph cover a range of geologic ages from recent times back to the Permian Era, as well as temperature and organic matter types.

This resource book will be of interest and benefit to petroleum explorationists and researchers, as well as oceanographers, marine and environmental scientists, sedimentologists, geochemists and paleontologists.

Editorial Reviews

SciTech Book News
International contributors address topics representing John Meacham Hunt´s wide interests, among them, modern-day analogs of depositional environments -research on the initial incorporation of organic matter in surface sediments on its way to becoming ancient sediment organic matter; the specifics of that transition; and the nature of oil and gas. Of interest, of course, to petroleum explorationists and researchers, but also to oceanographers, marine and environmental scientists, sedimentologists, geochemists, and paleontologists.
