Regional Geology and Tectonics
Volume 1A: Principles of Geologic Analysis A "how-to" primer describes the basic concepts petroleum geologists and students need to understand hydrocarbon exploration in a broad range of geological settings globally.
Volume 1B: Phanerozoic Rift Systems and Sedimentary Basins Incorporates industry data to present regional seismic lines and cross sections to accurately document and analyze proven hydrocarbon systems. It also includes summaries of analogue and theoretical models as an essential backdrop to the structure and stratigraphy of a variety of geological settings.
Volume 1C: Phanerozoic Passive Margins, Cratonic Basins and Global Tectonic Maps Focuses on both volcanic and non-volcanic passive margins as well as cratonic basins-critical habitats for hydrocarbons. It provides a unique basis for comparison of different passive margins and for an understanding of their structural and stratigraphic evolution, as well as their petroleum systems-especially useful to explorationists working in deep-water basins and researchers examining the tectonic evolution of the continent-ocean transition. A vast amount of data to enable hydrocarbon play assessments and analysis on passive margins is also included in this thorough yet accessible reference.
