4. “Oil and Gas Exploration in Cuba: Geological-Structural Cartography using Potential Fields and Airborne Gamma Spectrometry (SpringerBriefs in Earth System Sciences)” by Manuel Enrique Pardo Echarte and Jorge Luis Cobiella Reguera

“Oil and Gas Exploration in Cuba: Geological-Structural Cartography using Potential Fields and Airborne Gamma Spectrometry (SpringerBriefs in Earth System Sciences)” Book Review: This book gives a summary of geological-structural mapping. It deals with potential fields and airborne gamma spectrometry data. It gives us units of igneous and metamorphic rocks. This book contains structural- tectonic regionalization with hydrocarbon. It focuses on mapping of possible new oil-gas targets. It works on the profile of Redox Complex. It also provides acid magmatism, the gravi-magnetometric data. This book also consists of post metamorphic granitic bodies of low density. It also contains longitudinal faults (syn metamorphic) and transverse (post metamorphic). Is Explain Process multi folding and metamorphism of the massif sequences. It contains the role of the deep longitudinal fracture zones of sub latitudinal direction. It even provides magnetic field vertical derivatives of the anomalies, basically. This book reflects the direction and limits of the folded tectonic structure. It also helps us gain knowledge about the development area of ​​ volcanogenic rocks, the presumed development zones of migmatitic rocks and tectonised rocks.
