All disciplines have specific research purposes, missions, and characteristics, and thus defining their purposes and missions is the starting point and cornerstone in scientific research. This is certainly no exception in petroleum reservoir sedimentology, which, from the perspective of sedimentology, describes, evaluates, and predicts the main features (geometry, spatial distribution, and physical properties) of a petroleum reservoir, i.e., the appearance and internal properties, in order to improve the effects of hydrocarbon exploration and development.
