About this title


The plate-tectonic revolution some twenty-five years ago provided an extremely useful paradigm for interpreting basin stratigraphy and structure. The amount of data collected now makes it possible to link sophisticated basin models to specific plate-tectonic settings and use them to interpret regional plate-tectonic histories. With Tectonics of Sedimentary Basins, learn to use these models to identify and interpret the tectonic histories of other basins.
For the first time ever within a single publication, an internationally distinguished team of authors synthesizes virtually everything you need to know about all the major classes of basins. Each chapter covers the main characteristics of basin models - including continental terraces and rises, forearc basins, and remnant ocean basins - integrating sedimentology, structural geology, geophysical theory, and petrology to characterize the architecture of basins in most tectonic settings.
Tectonics of Sedimentary Basins represents one of the most ambitious works of its kind. Its exhaustive reference list and multidisciplinary approach make it an excellent research tool for both student and scientist alike.

From the Back Cover:

This new upper level textbook relates the theory of plate tectonics, which revolutionized geology twenty years ago, to the study of sedimentation. Sedimentary basins are characterized by their position relative to the plate margin when deposition occurs, and each chapter in this book examines a different major basin type. Written by acknowledged experts and edited by two of the most respected names in the field, this book will be invaluable for sedimentology students and researchers everywhere.
