Regional Geology and Tectonics, Volume Two: Phanerozoic Rift Systems and Sedimentary Basins, Second Edition, the second volume in a three-volume series, covers Phanerozoic regional geology and tectonics. This new edition features summaries of analogue and theoretical models, with new chapters on deepwater foldbelts and lithospheric extension as well as case studies on volcanic and passive margin basins. Experience in analyzing and assessing rifts— locations where the Earth’s outer shell and crust have been stretched over time by seismic activity—is critical for identifying Earth’s most lucrative hydrocarbon locations in which extraction is both efficient and safe, hence this updated volume is a necessary guide.

Vast compilations of related industry data presented include regional seismic lines and cross sections and summaries of analogue and theoretical models, making this an essential backdrop to the structure and stratigraphy of various geological settings.
