From the Back Cover:

The new edition of this successful text is designed to provide an introduction to and a concise review of principles and interpretations related to sedimentary process, environments, and deposits. The book emphasizes application over theory and features many summary tables and figures, as well as extensive and up-to-date references. The companion volume by the same authors, Analytical Sedimentology, provides "cookbook recipes" for common analytical procedures dealing with sediments, as well as an introduction to the principles and reference sources for procedures that generally would be performed by specialist consultants or commercial laboratories. Practical Sedimentology was designed as a supplemental text for students or a reference manual for practitioners, and will be an essential reference for students and professionals in the geosciences and environmental sciences.
