Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Basic concepts, vocabulary, and new ideas in petroleum exploration are presented in this introduction to the geology of sedimentary basins and petroleum exploration. Coverage encompasses the geodynamic mechanisms that interact on the planet, the formation and main types of sedimentary basins, continental and marine deposition environments, stratigraphic sequences and their transformations during burial, and tectonic deformations. The book concludes with a discussion of the formation of hydrocarbon fields and petroleum systems. The author is a professor at ENSPM-Formation Industrie, Institut Francais du Pétrole. The book is distributed by Enfield, and was first published in French as Géologie sédimentaire. Bassins, environments de dép<^o>ts, formation du pétrole in 1999 by Edition Technip, Paris.
