The Sedimentary Basins of the United States and Canada, Second Edition, focuses on the large, regional, sedimentary accumulations in Canada and the United States. Each chapter provides a succinct summary of the tectonic setting and structural and paleogeographic evolution of the basin it covers, with details on structure and stratigraphy. The book features four new chapters that cover the sedimentary basins of Alaska and the Canadian Arctic. In addition to sedimentary geologists, this updated reference is relevant for basin analysis, regional geology, stratigraphy, and for those working in the hydrocarbon exploration industry.

  • Features updates to existing chapters, along with new chapters on sedimentary basins in Alaska and Arctic Canada
  • Includes nearly 300 detailed, full-color paleogeographic maps
  • Written for general geological audiences and individuals working in the resources sector, particularly those in the fossil fuel industry
