"Basin Analysis is an up-to-date overview of the essential processes of the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins, and their implications of 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."
