This laboratory manual contains a variety of practical exercises in physical stratigraphy and sedimentology. Although intended to follow the organization of the author's "Basics of Physical Stratigraphy and Sedimentology," the book is flexible enough to be used with virtually any text or teaching approach. In each of the seven chapters, exercises are preceded by background material that discusses the theory and principles related to the topic, including numerous diagrams, charts, formulae and classification schemes. Topics include stratigraphic principles and correlation, texture and grain size analysis, sedimentary structures, and rock descriptions and stratigraphic columns. Varying in length and complexity, the exercises can be used with the limited rock and sediment collections at most colleges and universities.
