About this book

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.
