About this book

Evaporites: Sediments, Resources and Hydrocarbons proffers a comprehensive discussion of the role of evaporites in hydrocarbon generation and trapping. For the first time, diverse knowledge on exploitable salts has been assembled and organized, along with a summary of evaporate karst hazards as well as a summary of exploitative methods and pitfalls in dealing with evaporites in conventional and solution mining. Written by a field specialist in research and exploration, Evaporites: Sediments, Resources and Hydrocarbons presents a comprehensive synthesis of the low temperature realm of evaporite evolution. It is aimed for earth science professionals, sedimentologists, oil and gas explorers, mining geologists, as well as environmental geologists.

From the reviews: "In this new book, Warren ! extensively reviews nearly all important evaporite problems and aspects debated in recent literature, and also presents his own concepts and opinions. ! The book thus contains a wealth of information on both evaporites and related earth-science aspects. ! The book is also very well illustrated. ! Warren ! makes the text interesting and simple. The text is generally easy to read and to understand ! . the book is of value for a wide group of readers ! ." (Maciej Babel, Journal of Sedimentary Research, February, 2007) "The monograph presents a summary of exploitative methods in conventional and solution mining of evaporites and offers a comprehensive synthesis of the low temperature (sedimentary) realm of evaporite evolution as well as a comprehensive discussion of the role of evaporites in hydrocarbon generation and trapping. ! Included are several subjects on related different branches of science in a highly academic level. ! The book is for earth science professionals, sedimentologists, oil and gas explorers, mining and petroleum geologists, as well as environmental geologists." (Fakhry A. Assaad, Environmental Geology, Vol. 52 (7), 2007)
