Originally published in 1992, Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks is now back in print and available. In Petrology of Sedimentary Rocks, Dr. Sam Boggs wrote what has come to be considered the definitive text on the subject of sedimentary petrology. The book is intended for students at the senior and graduate level. The text provides a comprehensive description, classification and interpretation of all major sedimentary rock groups. The essential aspects of diagenesis, particle and chemical composition, and provenance receive unparalleled coverage. Photographs, line drawings and tables are utilized to enhance understanding and illustrate sedimentary structures, textures and compositions. A clear, fluid writing style distills the vast amount of information contained in the text, and presentation of controversial topics provides students with insight into divergent views and opinions. Prior to receiving his Ph.D. in geology from the University of Colorado in 1964, Sam Boggs worked as a petroleum exploration geologist for the Phillips Petroleum Company. On completion of his doctorate, Dr. Boggs conducted research for Esso Production Research, applying geological and geophysical techniques to interpret the stratigraphic characteristics of sedimentary sequences and stratigraphic controls on oil accumulation in major U.S. basins. During his career, Dr. Boggs, has authored many papers in sedimentary petrology, geological oceanography, stratigraphy and organic geochemistry.
