Geologica Acta
Geologica Acta (ISSN 1695-6133 / ISSN electrònic 1696-5728) és una revista institucional i d'accès obert, internacional i amb un perfil generalista de Ciències de la Terra. La revista acull tant articles de tipus conceptual com regional, amb especial èmfasi en les zones de la Mediterrània, Sud Amèrica i el Carib, però sense deixar de considerar contribucions de qualsevol regió del món. Igualment s'incentiva la publicació de números temàtics que donin a conèixer els resultats de projectes o reunions científiques internacionals.

An overview of environmental forensics / Philp, R. P. (University of Oklahoma. School of Geology and Geophysics)
Environmental forensics has emerged as an important area of environmental studies over the past two decades. There are two basic aspects to any environmental investigation. The first being a conventional approach where the standard EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) methods are used to determine concentrations of selected compounds released into the environment. [...]

Hydrous pyrolysis experiments were conducted on immature organic-rich rock with type-I kerogen to evaluate petroleum generation, saturation and expulsion processes. The experiments were carried out under isothermal conditions at ten different temperatures (280° through 360°C) for nine different time spans between 18 and 144h. [...]

(Bogotá, Colòmbia)) ; Guzmán, W. (Gems S.A. (Bogotá, Colòmbia)) ; Moldowan, J. M. (Stanford University)
A geochemical characterization of sixteen crude oil samples from the Putumayo Basin, southern Colombia, was carried out. This basin is located to the north of Ecuador’s Oriente Basin, one of the most prolific hydrocarbon basins in South America. [...]
in the Putumayo Basin can be achieved. Newly available geochemical technology shows evidence that these crude oils originated from Late Cretaceous source rocks. The novel application of an age-related biomarker, the C25-highly branched isoprenoid, has constrained the age of the principal source of all these oils as Late Cretaceous or younger. [...]

Characterization of asphaltic oil occurrences from the southeastern margin of the Basque-Cantabrian Basin, Spain / Marín, P. (Universitat de Barcelona. Department de Geologia, Petrologia i Prosprecció Geològica) ; Márquez, G. (Universidad de Huelva. Departmento de Ingeniería Minera, Mecánica y Energética) ; Gallego, J. R. (Universidad de Oviedo. Departmento de Explotación y Prospección de Minas) ; Permanyer, A. (Universitat de Barcelona. Department de Geologia, Petrologia i Prosprecció Geològica)
A geochemical investigation has been undertaken on biodegraded hydrocarbons in outcropping reservoirs of the south-eastern margin of the Basque-Cantabrian Basin (Álava sector). The aims of the study were the characterization of the geochemical features and biodegradation level of these hydrocarbons, and the evaluation of their resemblance to oils from the Ayoluengo onshore oil field by means of isotopic analyses and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry techniques.

Components and processes affecting producibility and commerciality of shale resource systems / Jarvie, D. M. (TCU Energy Institute and Worldwide Geochemistry (Humble, Estats Units d'Amèrica))
Unconventional shale resource systems have provided North America with abundant energy supplies and reserves for present and future decades. This energy resource was largely overlooked until the new millennium. [...]

Subduction consequences along the Andean margin : thermal and topographic signature of an ancient ridge subduction in the Marañón Basin of Perú / Baudino, R. (Repsol Exploration S.A. (Madrid)) ; Hermoza, W. (Repsol USA (The Woodlands, Estats Units d'Amèrica))
All along the eastern border of the Andes lie foreland basins that are among the most prolific hydrocarbon provinces of the world. Their Cenozoic evolution was controlled by the Andean uplift and its consequences on deformation and sedimentation. [...]
