Expert petroleum geologists David Roberts and Albert Bally bring you Regional Geology and Tectonics: Principles of Geologic Analysis, volume one in a three-volume series covering Phanerozoic regional geology and tectonics. It has been written to provide you with a detailed overview of geologic rift systems, passive margins, and cratonic basins, it features the basic principles necessary to grasping the conceptual approaches to hydrocarbon exploration in a broad range of geological settings globally.



  • A "how-to" regional geology primer that provides a detailed overview of tectonics, rift systems, passive margins, and cratonic basins
  • The principles of regional geological analysis and the main geological and geophysical tools are discussed in detail.
  • The tectonics of the world are captured and identified in detail through a series of unique geographic maps, allowing quick access to exact tectonic locations.
  • Serves as the ideal introductory overview and complementary reference to the core concepts of regional geology and tectonics offered in volumes two and three in the series.

Book News
In both petroleum and academic geology, generalists with hands-on experience are retiring and leaving the field to younger scientists who use computer programs to solve very focused problems using limited data sets. This series is designed to record fundamentals of regional geology that might otherwise be lost. This first of three parts of volume one covers the Earth, geological megaprovinces, principles of regional geological analysis: geological and geophysical tools, sedimentary systems, experimental and analogue structural models, and ocean basins.

Blackwell UK
Expert petroleum geologists David Roberts and Albert Bally have created an insightful overview on regional geology that illustrates the characteristics of various rifts, passive margins, and cratonic basins at different levels of abstraction. Regional Geology and Tectonics: Principles of Geologic Analysis, the first in a three-volume series, examines the principles of geological and geophysical analysis of sedimentary basins and sedimentary systems. This "how-to" primer describes the basic concepts petroleum geologists and students need to understand about hydrocarbon exploration in a broad range of geological settings globally.
