Basin Analysis, Principles and Applications by Philip Allen
DESCRIPCIÓN DEL TEXTO

Basin Analysis is an up-to-date overview of the essential processes of the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins, and their implications. 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.
  • 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.
  • Inclusion of the important petroleum system concept in the updated section on the application to the petroleum play.

Análisis de cuencas es una visión general actual de los procesos esenciales de la formación y la evolución de cuencas sedimentarias, y sus implicaciones para el desarrollo de recursos de hidrocarburo. La nueva edición contiene:

  • Una consideración del estado físico fundamental de la litósfera. 
  • Un debate acerca de la mayoria de tipos de deformaciones de la litosfera relevante para el desarrollo de cuencas.
  • Un nuevo capítulo de los efectos de dinámica del manto. 
  • La expansión de las técnicas usadas en problemas enfocados en análisis de cuencas. 
  • Capítulos actualizados de análisis de hundimiento y las medidas de madurez termal de componentes orgánicos y no orgánicos de las cuencas
  • La inclusión del importante concepto  de sistema de petroleo en la sección actualizada en la aplicación de la acción petrolera.
