Abstract

In this chapter, different processes of basin formation are explored and analyzed. The principal processes include isostasy, thermal subsidence, flexural subsidence, and intraplate stress. These processes are to be illustrated with an exercise on geohistory in which stratigraphic data are processed with a simplified mathematical approach that simulates many computer programs now available for such an analysis. Understanding of the geodynamic processes of basin evolution provides a framework for consideration of the ore-forming processes that result in sediment-hosted mineral deposits. It is expected that mineral deposits should differ with the processes that formed the basins.
