TSOP: Selected References on Organic Petrology
These bibliographic references have been compiled as a TSOP project, and organic petrologists have found the references to be useful in their work. The publications should be available at university or geological research center libraries. They are not available from TSOP, except for those listed on our Publications page, or as part of the TSOP Newsletter.
To view a category of references on this web site, choose from the list of individual topics.
Additional reference citations for inclusion in this project may be submitted to the webmaster. Please state which of the categories would include them.
ENDNOTE Library:Bob Cluff and others at The Discovery Group have formatted all 2200 TSOP references (from the 2007 update) on the topics listed at the left into an EndNote® X1 library. Download it here:
Updates to that file may be downloaded here (for EndNote® X2 and higher):
TSOP_references_2009_update.enl (2008 and 2009)
EndNote users can use its update process to add the contents of the 2009 update to the 2007 file. If comments or additional references have been placed in the 2007 file, this process will preserve them in the resulting file.
