AAPG's mission is to provide members, other geoscientists, and, in some cases, nongeologists with timely and useful publications at the lowest possible cost. There have been several series of books published by AAPG: Memoirs, Studies in Geology, Archie, Hedberg, Methods in Exploration, and general Special Publications. To date, more than 280 books have been published by AAPG.

In order to provide the widest possible variety of geoscience petroleum publications to its customers, in addition to its own books AAPG also carries titles from several other publishers, including the Geological Society of London, Cambridge University Press, and PennWell Publishing. For a full listing of available titles, visit store.aapg.org.

Currently, AAPG is publishing in the Memoir series only. All AAPG publications go through a proposal application process overseen by the AAPG Books Editorial Board and Elected Editor before being accepted for publication, and then all invited chapters of those approved books go through an additional stringent peer review process before being accepted for publication. AAPG publishes hard copy books, as well as hybrid combinations of hard copy and digital.

Book Ahead of Print is AAPG’s exciting new method of book delivery. Finished Memoir chapters are published online as Pay-Per-View PDFs during the assembly of the volume, which means that authors no longer have to wait on their colleagues to reap the benefits of citation, and readers have the earliest possible access to research.

Memoir editors receive a total of 15 complimentary copies of the book. Memoir chapter authors receive a PDF of their finished chapter and can purchase copies of the book at a 15% discount off the AAPG Member Sales Price, regardless of their AAPG member status.

Memoir 33 is designed specifically for use by the non-specialist who uses carbonate depositional environments in facies reconstructions and environmental interpretations. This classic work focuses on the recognition of depositional environments with extensive use of color diagrams and photographs of sedimentary structures and facies assemblages. Suitable for use as a textbook. Companion to Memoir 31.

Memoir 42, 7th Edition. The prime focus of the book continues to be the synergy between 3-D seismic data and the workstation. The author passionately addresses the widespread problem of data underutilization. Two new chapters and several new sections have been added in the 7th Edition, but basic data understanding continues to be stressed. Release Date: 08/2011

Using Memoir 77, students and other workers with little formal petrographic training should be able to examine thin sections or acetate peels under the microscope and interpret the main rock constituents and their depositional and diagenetic history. Designed to help deal with challenges in identifying skeletal grains, it includes a wide variety of examples of commonly encountered skeletal and nonskeletal grains, cements, fabrics, and porosity types and keys to grain identification.

Memoir 81 documents the current state in seismic imaging and interpreting of carbonate systems and captures the dynamics of the carbonate system on a large exploration scale and a small reservoir scale. Among the topics covered are the delineation of the complex histories of carbonate platform sequences from seismic data, the relationships between geometries and forming processes, the imaging of faults for improved mapping of potential fluid migration pathways, and use of seismic attributes for the extraction of rock properties in the sedimentary bodies.

Memoir 86 – Presented in M86 are the results of a major study of the petroleum resources of the world as analyzed by total petroleum systems. Geologic insights gained from studying these 149 systems and their constituent assessment units in 128 provinces and 96 countries, exclusive of the United States, allow a new look at petroleum accumulations and the rocks that are intimately associated with them. Lists of new areas of potential and new estimates of resources make this a must-have addition to the petroleum geologist’s library. Release date: 09/2005

Memoir 90 is a multidisciplinary book that includes a wide range of topics such as petroleum systems analysis, salt tectonics, basin modeling, and structural geology and tectonics. Focusing on the southern Gulf of Mexico (GOM) prolific offshore and onshore basins with an emphasis on the petroleum systems, this book is a must for exploration geologists and geophysicists, research scientists, faculty, and students who want to learn about the petroleum geology of the GOM.

Memoir 91 – Written for students, new professionals in oil companies, and anyone with an interest in reservoir geology, this volume explains the background to production geology in the context of oil field subsurface operations. It also gives practical guidelines as to how a production geologist can analyze the reservoir geology and fluid flow characteristics of an oil field with the aim of improving hydrocarbon recovery. Advice is given on how to search for oil volumes, where pockets can be found, and how to plan wells in a producing field. Release date: 09/2009

Memoir 92 portrays key applications of dipmeter and image log data across the exploration and production life cycle. It illustrates the value of integrating high-resolution dipmeter and borehole image data with seismic, well-log, and geological knowledge in order to construct integrated subsurface models. It provides the fundamentals of the technology for novice and specialist geoscientists and petroleum engineers alike, as well as introducing state-of-the-art applications. Release date: 08/2010
