For a number of years, there has been a great amount of interest in the Paradox Basin. The interest has been generated primarily by many aspects of the energy industry: from petroleum exploration and production to a world-class laboratory for students from many companies and countries; from a reawakening interest in uranium to problems associated with cleaning up the remains of the last boom; and from using fluid flow modeling in development and production to protecting the water supply from contamination.

This volume reflects all of these areas of interest and more. This publication presents information on the stratigraphy, sedimentology, structure/tectonics, economic geology, paleontology, geochemistry/mineralogy, and environmental geology/hydrology of this vast region.
