About this book

This advanced text treats the transformation of sediment into rock, a fundamental process which directly determines the storage and transmissibility properties of reservoirs and seals in hydrocarbon and groundwater systems and in strata-bound mineralization.

'Overall I enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it. The writing style is lucid, and the author makes his personal interpretations clear. The basic principles outlined here can be applied to a broad range of diagenetic problems.' The Canadian Mineralogist, 36 (1998) '... this book succeeds splendidly... should be required reading for anyone working on diagenetic problems, even if the rather advanced mathematical modeling is beyond their ability.' Episodes, 23:2 (2000)
