Regional Geology and Tectonics: Phanerozoic Rift Systems and Sedimentary Basins
- David G. Roberts, BP Exploration Operation Co. Ltd., Middlesex, UK
- A.W. Bally, Rice University, Houston, TX, USA
Expert petroleum geologists David Roberts and Albert Bally bring you Regional Geology and Tectonics: Phanerozoic Rift Systems and Sedimentary Basins, volume two in a three-volume series covering Phanerozoic regional geology and tectonics. Experience in analyzing and assessing rifts-locations where the Earthâs outer shell and crust have been stretched over time by seismic activity-is critical for you as an exploration geologist in identifying Earthâs most lucrative hydrocarbon locations in which extraction is both efficient and safe. Vast compilations of related industry data present regional seismic lines and cross sections, and summaries of analogue and theoretical models are provided as an essential backdrop to the structure and stratigraphy of various geological settings.
Geologists, geophysicists, and marine geologists globally in academia and petroleum exploration with a focus on tectonics, basin analysis, sedimentary processes and petroleum systems. The secondary market includes undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as instructors in Geosciences.
