About this book

This volume provides the most up-to-date systematic, cohesive, and comprehensive description of the geology of the Gulf of Mexico basin. The book's six sections address the Gulf's origin (including petroleum resources), processes (including climate change), and coral reefs.

Knowledge about the foundation of the ocean environment remains vital to the understanding of the mineral and marine resources of the Gulf as well as the increasing effects of sedimentation and global warming. With Gulf of Mexico Origin, Waters, and Biota, Volume 3, much of the information necessary for a full view of the geology of the Gulf in the U.S., Mexico, and Cuba that was previously sequestered in the files of industry or government has been made more readily available for scientists, researchers, and students. It provides valuable synthesis and interpretation, representing nearly everything known about the geology of the Gulf of Mexico in the early twenty-first century.

"Gulf of Mexico Origin, Waters, and Biota, Volume 3: Geology provides the most up-to-date, systematic, cohesive, and comprehensive description of the geology of the Gulf of Mexico Basin. Five years in the making, this monumental compilation is both a lasting record of the current state of knowledge and the starting point for a new millennium of study."
