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. High-resolution versions of these images can also be downloaded from the companion website for this book at:

Carbonate Sedimentology and Sequence Stratigraphy

This book, dedicated to carbonate rocks, approaches sequence stratigraphy from its sedimentologic background. It attempts to communicate by combining different specialities and different lines of reasoning, and by searching for principles underlying the bewildering diversity of carbonate rocks. It provides enough general background, in introductory chapters and appendices, to be easily digestible for sedimentologists and stratigraphers as well as earth scientists at large.

This concise treatment of the fundamental principles of sedimentology and stratigraphy highlights the important physical, chemical, biological and stratigraphic characteristics of sedimentary rocks. It emphasizes the ways in which the study of sedimentary rocks is used to interpret depositional environments, changes in ancient sea level, and other intriguing aspects of Earth’s history.

Basics of Physical Stratigraphy and Sedimentology

This concise volume offers one of the few modern treatments of stratigraphy and sedimentology, featuring the use of the stratigraphic code and an analysis of the history of geology in the development of stratigraphic principles. Covers important processes that form sedimentary rocks, explains the interpretation of rock sequences from outcrop scale to regional stratigraphic packages, and synthesizes rock and sedimentary structure classification schemes. Presents the basic tools for interpreting sedimentary structures using a process-approach to physical sedimentology, and reveals stratigraphic relationships not found in other texts. The text contains many illustrations, which provide compilations of standard classifications, hydrodynamic principles, and processes of sedimentation recast in an easily understandable format.
