Basin Analysis is an advanced undergraduate andpostgraduate text aimed at understanding sedimentary basins asgeodynamic entities. The rationale of the book is that knowledge ofthe basic principles of the thermo-mechanical behaviour of thelithosphere, the dynamics of the mantle, and the functioning ofsediment routing systems provides a sound background for studyingsedimentary basins, and is a pre-requisite for the exploitation ofresources contained in their sedimentary rocks. The third editionincorporates new developments in the burgeoning field of basinanalysis while retaining the successful structure and overallphilosophy of the first two editions.

The text is divided into 4 parts that establish the geodynamicalenvironment for sedimentary basins and the physical state of thelithosphere, followed by a coverage of the mechanics of basinformation, an integrated analysis of the controls on the basin-filland its burial and thermal history, and concludes with anapplication of basin analysis principles in petroleum playassessment, including a discussion of unconventional hydrocarbonplays. The text is richly supplemented by Appendices providingmathematical derivations of a wide range of processes affecting theformation of basins and their sedimentary fills. Many of theseAppendices include practical exercises that give the readerhands-on experience of quantitative solutions to important basinanalysis processes.

Now in full colour and a larger format, this third edition is acomprehensive update and expansion of the previous editions, and represents a rigorous yet accessible guide to problemsolving in this most integrative of geoscientific disciplines.
