More About This Textbook

Overview

The Circum-Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean has long been one of the world's most important petroleum provinces, as well as one of the world's most geologically complex regions. These two characteristics have resulted in an extensive amount of ongoing research by both industry and academia.

AAPG Memoir 79, The Circum-Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, is the first volume in more than a decade to document such a wide range of research on the geology of this vast area. Of the total 44 papers, roughly two-thirds pertain to the Gulf of Mexico, with an emphasis on the Mexican portion of the basin, and to the petroliferous areas of the southern Caribbean, including Colombia, Venezuela, Cuba, and Trinidad and Tobago. The remaining papers relate to the Antilles and Central America, as well as a series of papers that address region-wide topics such as plate tectonic evolution. A significant number of papers were contributed by authors from national oil companies and universities from within the region.

This is the first AAPG Memoir to be published in a combination hard-copy/digital format, which offers added benefits for both authors and readers, including an unlimited number of color figures and more content than would be possible with a hard-copy publication. The hardcopy contains the introductory chapters, abstracts, and four figures from each paper. A CD is included, in a pocket attached to the inside of the back cover, which includes the complete papers.

The Circum-Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean promises to be a landmark reference for all geoscientists focused on the challenges of unraveling the geology and petroleum systems of this fascinating region.
