Atlas of sedimentary rocks under the microscope A third volume to accompany the successful Atlas of Rock-forming Minerals in Thin Section and Atlas of Igneous Rocks and Their Textures, this full-colour handbook presents over 200 colour illustrations of the common constituents and textures of sedimentary rocks as seen using thin sections or acetate peels. Since carbonate rocks show the greatest variety of grain types half the book is devoted to them, but the authors also cover sandstones, ironstones, phosphatic rocks, evaporites and cherts. In addition to the plates and their captions a short introduction outlines the classifications used and the staining techniques applied to most of the limestone samples. Like its predecessors, this atlas provides an essential guide and laboratory manual for geology students and teachers. Amateur geologists will also find much to help them enjoy the study of sedimentary rocks under the microscope with the aid of relatively simple equipment. A. E. Adams is Lecturer in Geology at the University of Manchester. W. S. MacKenzie is Emeritus Professor of Petrology at the University of Manchester. C. Guilford was formerly Superintendent of the Department of Geology at the University of Manchester.
