There have been a number of papers marking the association between micropalaeontology and petroleum exploration, and a small number of books containg contributions to the subject. However, there have been no previous books that provide a comprehensive and thematic treatment. This book attemptsto redress that imbalance. The first part deals with pure micropalaentology. Microfossil groups include calcareous, siliceous, phosphatic, and organic-walled microfossils and calcareous nanofossils. The second part treats the principles and practice of applied micropalaentology and sequencestratigraphy. Case histories of applications in a range of geographic, geologic, amd stratigraphic settings are given. The final chapter deals with applications outside petroleum exploration, and contains sections on environmental monitoring, coal mining, mineral exploration and exploitation, andengineering. The book is extensively illustrated and referenced, and is an invaluable reseource for both academic and commercial palaeontologists.

Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition `To date there has not been a single reference which provides a comprehensive thematic treatment of the subject. This book attempts to fill this role. I consider this book to be good value. It is a valuable purchase for any company involved in petroleumexploration in view of the variety of examples and comprehensive literature reviews and references.''Marine and Petroleum Geology
