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. The 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. * Inclusion of the important petroleum system concept in the updated section on the application to the petroleum play.
