Salt Tectonics : Principles and Practice, Hardback Book



Salt tectonics is the study of how and why salt structures evolve and the three-dimensional forms that result.

A fascinating branch of geology in itself, salt tectonics is also vitally important to the petroleum industry.

Covering the entire scale from the microscopic to the continental, this textbook is an unrivalled consolidation of all topics related to salt tectonics: evaporite deposition and flow, salt structures, salt systems, and practical applications.

Coverage of the principles of salt tectonics is supported by more than 600 color illustrations, including 200 seismic images captured by state-of-the-art geophysical techniques and tectonic models from the Applied Geodynamics Laboratory at the University of Texas, Austin.

These combine to provide a cohesive and wide-ranging insight into this extremely visual subject.

This is the definitive practical handbook for professional geologists and geophysicists in the petroleum industry, an invaluable textbook for graduate students, and a reference textbook for researchers in various geoscience fields.
