New perspectives in basin analysis by K Kleinspehn( Book )

23 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and German and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the reader with an overview of modern concepts and techniques in the analysis of sedimentary basins. It surveys a wide variety of methods for studying basins, focusing on fundamental approaches rather than regional geology. The coverage includes sources-area characterization, lithostratigraphy and chronostratigraphy, tectonics and sedimentation, Precambrian basins. Written by leading international experts in honor of Professor Francis J. Pettijohn, one of the founders of this field, this well illustrated and throroughly documented book will appeal to researchers and exploration geologists seeking a single resource on current research in basin analysis

New Perspectives in Basin Analysis( )

In the extensive field of earth sciences, with its many subdisciplines, the trans fer of knowledge is primarily established via personal communication, during meetings, by reading journal articles, or by consulting books. Because more information is available than can be assimilated, it is necessary for the individual to search selectively. Books take more time from the inception of an idea until publication than any of the other means of communication men tioned. As a consequence, their function is somewhat different. Many good books are a compilation of up to date knowledge and serve as reference or instruction manuals. Some books are a collection of previously published papers dealing with a certain topic, while others may basically provide large sets of data or examples. The Frontiers in Sedimentary Geology series was established both for stu dents and practicing earth scientists who wish to either stay abreast of the most recent ideas or developments or to become familiar with an important topic in the field of sedimentary geology. The series attempts to deal with sub jects that are in the forefront of both scientific and economic interest. The treatment of a subject in an individual volume should be a combination of topi cal, regional, and interdisciplinary approaches. Although these three terms can be defined separately, in reality they should flow into each other. A topical treatment should relate to a major category of sedimentary geology
