  • Undiscovered Petroleum and Mineral Resources

    the development of highly complex processes for evaluating petroleum and mineral resources has fueled debates on the appropriateness of various assessment models and the data used to calibrate them. Covering technical subjects and a range of analytical perspectives, this volume thoroughly discusses current progress in building quantitative ...

  • Thrust Belts and Foreland Basins

    What is the important geologic information recorded in Thrust Belts and Foreland Basins (TBFB) on the evolution of orogens? How do they transcript the coupled influence of deep and surficial geological processes? Is it still worth looking for hydrocarbons in foothills areas? These and other questions are addressed in the volume edited by Lacombe, ...

  • Geological Atlas of Africa

    This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesise the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards, geosites and geoscientific education of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps (on the attached CD-ROM) are correlated and harmonised ...

  • Interpretation of Geophysical Fields in Complicated Environments

    The book describes a system developed for the processing and interpretation of geophysical fields under conditions of uneven relief, variable geological medium, oblique magnetization (polarization) and an unknown level of the normal field. This is the main difference from other books. The following procedures are developed and elaborated: ...

  • Cratons and Fold Belts of India

    Cratons and Fold Belts of India, is a unique attempt at presenting geological characteristics and evolution of the fold belts and the cratonic areas of the Indian shield. The author has evaluated the different evolutionary models for each fold belt in light of all the currently available geological and geochronological informations that are ...

  • Spatial Modeling Principles in Earth Sciences

    A comprehensive presentation of spatial modeling techniques used in the earth sciences, this book also outlines original techniques developed by the author. Data collection in the earth sciences is difficult and expensive. It requires special care to gather accurate geological information. Spatial simulation methodologies in the earth sciences are ...

  • Studies of Cave Sediments

    Caves serve as unique repositories for geologic, biologic, and anthropologic information. The sediments within these natural cavities are incredibly diverse. They include secondary minerals such as calcite and gypsum, which occur in sundry forms, as well as allogenic and autogenic clasts. This book is for any geoscience researcher or student with ...
