About the Author

With over 15 years experience as a geochemist in the petroleum industry, he is currently Senior Research Geologist at the US Geological Survey. Senior Research Geochemist at ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company. A member of the Chevron Biomarker Group in the 1970s and 1980s during a time of pioneering research into the application of biomarker technology to petroleum exploration.


'The authors have clearly and thoroughly explained the widespread application of biomarkers in the exploration and production of petroleum. No other book shows these organic markers so clearly as a useful tool for the operating geologist, the reservoir engineer, and professors and their students who work in the petroleum field.' John M. Hunt, Petroleum Geochemist, 1982 Alfred Treibs Medalist, author of Petroleum Geochemistry and Geology (1996, W.H. Freeman) 'The updated and expanded Biomarker Guide, 2nd Edition has the quality and depth to become the 'scientific bible'for a diverse audience of experts and newcomers in this interdisciplinary field of science, ranging from geologists and archaeologists to environmental scientists, microbiologists, and chemists.' Dietrich H. Welte, Organic Geochemist, 1983 Alfred Treibs Medalist, co-author of Petroleum Formation and Occurrence (1984, Springer-Verlag) 'The 2nd Edition of The Biomarker Guide contains the most comprehensive discussion of the world's petroleum systems available. It is a 'must have' for all petroleum geologists and students of subsurface fluid systems.' Leslie B. Magoon, Petroleum Systems Analyst, Recipient as co-editor of the R.H. Dott, Sr. Memorial Award for AAPG Memoir 60 The Petroleum System - From Source to Trap 'The Biomarker Guide 1st Edition has been an indispensable reference for virtually all organic geochemists for the past ten years. I use it constantly and eagerly await my copy of the revised and extended 2nd Edition. It will certainly remain the standard reference for my classes and laboratory.' Roger E. Summons, Biogeochemist, 2003 Alfred Treibs Medalist, Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology 'The 2nd Edition is an excellent synthesis of biomarker and isotopic geochemistry in petroleum research with a greatly expanded treatment of applications to environmental issues, the latter filling what has hitherto been a significant gap in the literature. This two-volume set will be an important resource for graduate teaching.' Barbara Sherwood Lollar, Isotope Geochemist, profiled in TIME magazine's Leaders of the 21st Century for research on tracing organic contaminants in groundwater, University of Toronto Praise for first edition: 'The authors should be congratulated for compiling and publishing this important and useful guide.' Raphael Ikan, Organic Geochemistry Praise for first edition: 'This book will rapidly become the standard in the field ... required reading for anyone interested in understanding biomarkers and their application in petroleum geology.' Joseph A. Curiale, American Association of Petroleum Geologists Praise for the first edition: 'The book is a must for any geological research library, and certainly a necessary reference for petroleum research.' William D. Bischoff, Carbonates and Evaporites
