This fully revised and updated edition introduces the reader to sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The processes of formation, transport and deposition of sediment are considered and then applied to develop conceptual models for the full range of sedimentary environments, from deserts to deep seas and reefs to rivers.

Different approaches to using stratigraphic principles to date and correlate strata are also considered, in order to provide a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of sedimentology and stratigraphy. The text and figures are designed to be accessible to anyone completely new to the subject, and all of the illustrative material is provided in an accompanying CD-ROM.

Book Description:

Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is one of the first introductory texts to relate sedimentological units to the larger stratigraphic picture. The author considers the Earth in terms of its physical environments, to describe the processes which affect generation, transport and deposition of sediment, and to build up a picture of the stratigraphy generated by these processes.

From the Back Cover:

Sedimentary rocks contain the most important archive of environmental change through earth history. They record changing climates, the movement of plates, and the rise and fall of sea-level on timescales of a few thousand to billions of years. This fully revised and updated edition introduces the reader to sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The processes of formation, transport and deposition of sediment are considered and then applied to develop conceptual models for the full range of sedimentary environments, from deserts to deep seas and reefs to rivers.
