Basin Analysis: Quantitative Methods, Volume 1 discusses the problems of quantitative basin analysis in relation to oil accumulations. This book explains the three primary factors that contribute to oil occurrences. Organized into 11 chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the quantitative methods of reconstructing the burial history of sedimentary material in basins. This text then explores the problem of quantitative reconstruction of the thermal history of sedimentary basins based on both inversion of thermal indicator data and on model-derived heat fluxes. Other chapters integrate the hydrocarbon generation, accumulation, and migration modeling aspects with the burial history and thermal history. This book discusses as well the repercussions of various hydrocarbon models for oil accumulation sites. The final chapter shows how both thermal information and burial history can be combined to determine emplacement, timing, and erosion of geological events. Professional geologists, geophysicists, and petroleum exploration scientist will find this book useful.
