Philip Allen (Geological Institute, Swiss Federal Polytecnic) and John Allen, a petroleum geologist working in Australia, overview processes related to the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins and discuss the implications of these processes for the development of hydrocarbon resources. This second edition takes into account the explosion of new data, technology, and concepts in the field since the first edition was published, and contains new material on lithospheric deformation, mantle dynamics, erosion processes in sediment delivery to basins, and thermochronological and exposure dating tools. The book is for advanced students and professional earth scientists.
