Media reviews

'There is a great deal which can be learned from this book. With its emphasis on sound physics and quantitative examples, the approach or philosophy is admirable and comes across clearly.' Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists ' ! useful to all geoscientists interested in thermal data.' EOS 'Thermal models of sedimentary basins provide a critical framework to understanding their evolution and the maturation of organic material. ! the book succeeds in its stated goal of making links between the underlying physical principles, data collection, and the use of sophisticated basin analysis models. At the same time it provides additional insight into thermal problems not limited to thermal basin analysis. ! I will refer to this book often.' Geological Magazine
