Advances in Petroleum Geochemistry
Petroleum geochemistry has turned out to be more than another step in the direction to quantify geology and geosciences in general. Petroleum geochemistry as it is today may very well be the triggering event that brings the other branches of geosciences like sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, geophysics and others to a fruitful synthesis as evidenced by integrated basin studies.
