Abstract: From the late seventies to the present day, lacustrine sedimentology and lacustrine-related basin analysis have developed from a near-marginal aca- demic curiosity into a new ground-breaking multidisciplinary body of learning. The starting-point was economic interest in ancient lacustrine sequences as potential suppliers of natural resources such as raw materials (diatomites, clays), evaporite salts and energy (hydrocarbons and coal). The early discoveries of substantial hydrocarbon reserves connected with lacustrine facies in the western USA heralded the huge reserves found later in China, Brazil, western Africa, southeast Asia and the Caspian Sea, among other places.
