9781780460178: Introducing Sedimentology (Introducing Earth and Environmental Sciences)

Sediments and sedimentary rocks are fundamental to our understanding of the Earth and the array of environments that characterize its surface. Since some 70% of the rocks on the Earth's surface are sedimentary in origin, and sediments are of great economic importance, there is a very good chance that we encounter a sedimentary rock or an associated sedimentary process at some point in our daily lives. This book covers all of the rudimentary aspects of sedimentology, including different types of sedimentary rocks, sedimentary structures, and environments of deposition of sediments. The application of sedimentology in the search for hydrocarbons and other valuable economic resources is explained. Written for students, amateur enthusiasts, and professional geologists, the book provides a succinct and accessible introduction to the science of sedimentology. It is generously illustrated with many explanatory line diagrams and color photographs. Technical terms are kept to a minimum throughout the book, but a glossary of terms is provided. *** "'Introducing Sedimentology' by Stuart Jones (Senior Lecturer in Sedimentology, Durham University, England) is a beautifully and profusely illustrated ninety-six page presentation specifically designed to explain what sedimentology is and how it is applied as a branch of the geological sciences. Very highly recommended for school and community library collections. Ideal for the non-specialist general reader..." - Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch: May 2015, Science Shelf [Subject: Sedimentology, Geology, Earth Science]
