Sedimentary basins host, among others, most of our energy and fresh-water resources: they can be regarded as large geo-reactors in which many physical and chemical processes interact. Their complexity can only be well understood in well-organized interdisciplinary co-operations.

This book documents how researchers from different geo-scientific disciplines have jointly analysed the structural, thermal, and sedimentary evolution as well as fluid dynamics of a complex sedimentary basin system which has experienced a variety of activation and reactivation impulses as well as intense salt tectonics. In this book we have summarized our geological, geophysical and geochemical understanding of some of the most important processes affecting sedimentary basins in general and our view on the evolution of one of the largest, best explored and most complex continental sedimentary basins on Earth: The Central European Basin System.

From the reviews:

"This volume includes 21 individual research papers. ... The volume is illustrated very richly. Most of the figures are given in colour, and all are very accurate. ... It presents the Central European Basin System as an example of a complex intra-continental basin, and, thus, it is of theoretical importance. ... recommends it for all specialists in basin evolution, tectonics, hydrocarbons, salt dynamics, and European geology. Undoubtedly, it will serve as an ultimate reference on the Central European Basin System for decades." (D. A Ruban, Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie Teil II, Issue 1/2, May, 2009)
