Presenting a rigorous treatment of the physical and mechanical basis for the modelling of sedimentary basins, this book supplies geoscientists with practical tools for creating their own models. It begins with a thorough grounding in properties of porous media, linear elasticity, continuum mechanics and rock compressibility. Chapters on heat flow, subsidence, rheology, flexure and gravity consider sedimentary basins in the context of the Earth's lithosphere, and the book concludes with coverage of pore space cementation, compaction and fluid flow. The volume introduces basic, state-of-the-art models and demonstrates how to reproduce results using tools like MATLAB ® and Octave. Main equations are derived from first principles, and their basic solutions are obtained and then applied. Separate notes sections supply more technical details, and the text is illustrated throughout with real-world examples, applications and test exercises. This is an accessible introduction to quantitative modelling of basins for graduate students, researchers and oil industry professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a well-written book and a must read for geoscientists and engineers interested in modeling geological processes. Graduate students, experienced researchers, and experts in the field of geomodeling in the oil and gas industry should recognize this book to be an invaluable resource.' Palaios
'... I recommend this book to all specialists in sedimentary geology (and, particularly, basin analysis), geophysics, tectonics ... a new significant contribution to the understanding of the complex Earth dynamics. Well done!' The Sedimentary Record
"...I recommend this book to all specialists in sedimentary geology (and, particularly, basin analysis), geophysics, tectonics, and, possibly, geomorphology. In addition to professionals in these disciplines, some graduate and postgraduate students with good skills in mathematics may find this book useful as a source of some advanced knowledge. Generally, the work is a new significant contribution to the understanding of the complex Earth dynamics. Well done!" Dmitry A. Ruban, The Sedimentary Record Book Review
