  • Fundamentals of Basin and Petroleum Systems Modeling

    This text contains the first comprehensive presentation of methods and algorithms used in basin modeling. It provides geoscientists and geophysicists with an extensive in-depth view of the theory behind the models. Heat flow analysis, chemical kinetics of petroleum generation, pressure analysis, PVT modeling and several fluid flow models are ...

  • Subsurface Conditions

    Characterisation of the shallow subsurface has gained in importance as civil and geotechnical engineering and environmental applications have become more dependent on a precise definition of geomechanical and geohydrological properties. A better understanding of the subsurface conditions offers wide-ranging benefits to governments, industry and ...

  • Mathematical Methods and Modelling in Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production

    Hydrocarbon exploration and production incorporate great technology challenges for the oil and gas industry. In order to meet the world's future demand for oil and gas, further technological advance is needed, which in turn requires research across multiple disciplines, including mathematics, geophysics, geology, petroleum engineering, signal ...

  • Granite Genesis: In-Situ Melting and Crustal Evolution

    Granitic rocks are a major component of the continental crust and the many and complex problems of their origin that have confronted geologists for over 200 years still are presenting challenges today. Current ideas of granite formation involve lower crustal melting, segregation, ascent (as dykes or diapirs) and emplacement in the upper crust. In ...

  • Carbonate Reservoir Characterization

    One principal need in petroleum recovery from carbonate reservoirs is the description of the three-dimensional distribution of petrophysical properties in order to improve performance predictions by means of fluid-flow computer simulations. The book focuses on a rock based approach for the integration of geological, petrophysical, and ...

  • Geodynamics of the Lithosphere

    This book is an introductory text for all earth scientists interested in learning about the quantitative description of geological problems. It contains chapters on heat flow, sedimentary basin modelling, mechanics of continental deformation, PT path modelling, geomorphology and mass transfer and more. In its style, the book is aimed at the field ...

  • North Sea Oil and Gas Reservoirs III

    Oil and gas have been produced from North Sea reservoirs for over two decades. The economic and technological challenges posed by the North Sea have necessitated a continuing development of refined geological and reservoir technical methods for reservoir evaluation and management. This book, which is the third in a series, brings together the ...

  • Introduction to Industrial Minerals

    Introduction to Industrial Minerals introduces the reader to the subject of the new mineral raw materials that our society demands. It emphasizes the way in which, in order to satisfy the consumer, the requirements of industry control mineral exploitation, and the way fundamental mineral properties are exploited for particular applications. ...

  • GIS for the Earth Sciences CD-Rom

    This volume provides the earth scientist with many examples of how a Geographic Information System (GIS) in concert with other software (statistical, image analysis) can be useful for addressing various earth science applications that involve spatial analysis of a wide range of geo-science datasets. Examples include mineral resource assessment ...

  • Defence Nuclear Waste Disposal in Russia: International Perspective

    Significant amounts of liquid and solid radioactive waste have been generated in Russia during the production of nuclear weapons, and there is an urgent need to find suitable ways to manage these wastes in a way that protects both the current population and future generations. This book contains contributions from pure and applied scientists ...
