This CD-ROM comprises the classic works of M. King Hubbert who was, and remains, a dominant influence for testing geologic thought in terms of sound physical principles. Thirty-seven articles and discussions (published by AAPG and 6 other publishers) describe the essence of Hubert’s work (but NOT including his work in estimating future production of undiscovered petroleum reserves).
History of Geology
Articles include these classics: "The Theory of Ground-Water Motion," "Entrapment of Petroleum under Hydrodynamic Conditions," "Mechanical Basis of Certain Familiar Geologic Structures," "Role of Fluid Pressure in Mechanics of Overthrust Faulting," and "Mechanics of Hydraulic Fracturing."
All articles are in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. Access is via Table of Contents or via full-text search-and-retrieval. A copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader™ is provided.
