"Basin Analysis" is an up-to-date overview of the essential processes of the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins, and their implications for the development of hydrocarbon resources.This new edition features: a consideration of the fundamental physical state of the lithosphere; a discussion on the major types of lithospheric deformation relevant to basin development - stretching and flexure; a new chapter on the effects of mantle dynamics; radically revised chapters on the basin-fill; a new chapter on the erosional engine for sediment delivery to basins, reflecting the massive and exciting advances in this area in the last decade; expansion of the techniques used in approaching problems in basin analysis; updated chapters on subsidence analysis and measurements of thermal maturity of organic and non-organic components of the basin-fill; new material on thermochronological and exposure dating tools; and, inclusion of the important petroleum system concept in the updated section on the application to the petroleum play.

Basin Analysis is an up-to-date overview of the essential processes of the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins, and their implications for the development of hydrocarbon resources. Since the first edition of this important and popular text, there has been an explosion of new data, new technology and new concepts in the field. This new edition takes account of these developments while retaining the successful structure and philosophy of the original text.Basin Analysis builds an understanding of sedimentary basins by examining the principles underlying how basins function by looking at their structure, thermal and subsidence history, and stratigraphic architecture..From the Back Cover :
This book is intended for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professional earth scientists requiring an overview of the essential processes of sedimentary basin formation and evolution and their implications for the development of hydrocarbon resources. The mechanisms of formation, the subsequent burial history and the resultant stratigraphic and depositional patterns are linked by an integrated approach. Numerous worked examples are designed to familiarize the reader with important techniques used in basin analysis. The application to petroleum exploration of the improved understanding of how basins work is an underlying theme.
