Kurzbeschreibung

Investigating the complex interplay between tectonics andsedimentation is a key endeavor in modern earth science. Many ofthe world's leading researchers in this field have been broughttogether in this volume to provide concise overviews of the currentstate of the subject.
The plate tectonic revolution of the 1960's provided theframework for detailed models on the structure of orogens andbasins, summarized in a 1995 textbook edited by Busby andIngersoll. Tectonics of Sedimentary Basins: RecentAdvances focuses on key topics or areas where the greateststrides forward have been made, while also providing on-line accessto the comprehensive 1995 book.
Breakthroughs in new techniques are described in Section1, including detrital zircon geochronology, cosmogenic nuclidedating, magnetostratigraphy, 3-D seismic, and basin modelling.Section 2 presents the new models for rift, post-rift,transtensional and strike slip basin settings. Section 3addresses the latest ideas in convergent margin tectonics,including the sedimentary record of subduction intiation andsubduction, flat-slab subduction, and arc-continent collision; itthen moves inboard to forearc basins and intra-arc basins, and endswith a series of papers formed under compessional strain regimes,as well as post-orogenic intramontane basins. Section 4examines the origin of plate interior basins, and the sedimentaryrecord of supercontinent formation.
This book is required reading for any advanced student orprofessional interested in sedimentology, plate tectonics, orpetroleum geoscience.

Cathy Busby got her BS from Berkeley and her PhD fromPrinceton University, both in Geological Sciences. She mainly workson upper crustal rocks, combining stratigraphy, structural geology,geochronology, geochemistry and paleomagnetics to solve tectonicproblems. Her papers also include process-oriented studies insubmarine and subaaerial volcanism, clastic depositional systems,and economic geology. Her research support has come from geothermaland gold exploration industries, as well as the petroleum industry,the U.S. Geological Survey, and the National Science Foundation.
Antonio Azor: Full Professor in Structural Geology andTectonic Geomorphology at the Department of Geodynamics of theUniversity of Granada (Spain). Research fields of interest:Structural Geology and Tectonics, Active Tectonics, TectonicGeomorphology, Regional Geology of the Late Palaeozoic VariscanOrogen and the Alpine Betic Cordillera.
