Petroleum geochemistry has grew to become out to be greater than one other step within the course to quantify geology and geosciences more often than not. Petroleum geochemistry because it is at the present time could possibly be the triggering occasion that brings the opposite branches of geosciences like sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, geophysics and others to a fruitful synthesis as evidenced via built-in basin experiences

Their published work was mainly concerned with reflectance changes at very low maturity levels (RQ = 0 . 3 0 . 6 % ) , w h e r e oil generation has in general b e e n minimal. 2% (Lerche, personal communication, 1982). T h e possible implications from their studies—that vitrinite is therefore a p o o r indicator of the hydrocarbon-generation window, and that the t i m e - t e m p e r a t u r e d e p e n d e n c e of oil generation might be quite different than predicted from other models—are thought-provoking.

A model developed by Bostick (1973) also took into account the contributions to thermal maturation of time spent at the maximum burial t e m p e r a t u r e as well as time spent at lower t e m p e r a t u r e s .

Adapted with permission. be the effect of the lower t e m p e r a t u r e . H e produced a diagram (Fig. 12), derived from Karweil's n o m o g r a p h (1956), for estimating vitrinite reflectance values from the time and t e m p e r a t u r e history, and showed a very good correlation between m e a s u r e d and predicted values for several samples.

In general, temp e r a t u r e data are by far the weakest part of any t i m e - t e m p e r a t u r e model. Given these limitations, it is worth questioning whether improving other aspects of Lopatin's m e t h o d will lead to appreciably better correlations. Much effort should be expended to improve our knowledge of m o d e r n and ancient t e m p e r a t u r e s . A n o t h e r important problem has arisen from Waples' application (1980) of Lopatin's m e t h o d to oil- and gas-preservation deadlines.
