Principles of Regional Geology is a two volume work and its scope is defined by 'regional scale'. A set of introductory chapters together with overviews that preface the major sections provide the reader with the basic principles allowing him to explore (or zoom into) the book at various levels of detail. It should be stressed that the book is not about methohds though the introductory chapters are intended to provide a nutshell overview of the different methods useful for regional analysis with the main emphasis on the importance of integration as well as limitations. Summaries of analogue and theoretical models are provided as an essential backdrop to structure and stratigraphy. Chapters 1 through 7 thus provide a global overview of the Earth, principles and methods for regional geologic analysis and a summary of the physical and theoretical basis of geological modelling. The main body of volume 1 deals with extensional basins including rifts and passive margins. The book takes advantage of the increased availability of seismic data to present regional basin scale seismic lines as foldouts.
