9780632035786: Sedimentology & Stratigraphy

Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is the first introductory text to relate sedimentological units to the larger stratigraphic picture. Representing current research priorities, it leaves behind an older--and now outdated--generation of textbooks. The author's aim is to consider the earth in terms of its physical environments, to describe the processes that affect generation, transport and deposition of sediment, and to build up a picture of the stratigraphy generated by these processes. The initial treatment is geomorphological and the general approach is non-mathematical. This will become the introductory textbook of choice in sedimentology and stratigraphy.


  • The first introductory text to relate the units of sedimentology to the larger, stratigraphic picture.
  • Eclipses an older generation of textbooks written before sequence stratrigraphy gave rise to a renaissance in stratigraphy.
  • Covers the full range of sedimentology, from sub-microscopic analysis of grains of sand to the palaeogeographic evolution of whole basins.
  • Largely a non-mathematical approach, within the grasp of students starting a degree course.
  • Explains clearly the technical terms of soft-rock geology.

Book Description:

Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is one of the first introductory texts to relate sedimentological units to the larger stratigraphic picture. The author considers the Earth in terms of its physical environments, to describe the processes which affect generation, transport and deposition of sediment, and to build up a picture of the stratigraphy generated by these processes.

From the Back Cover:

The record of tectonic and climatic processes through geological time is held within sedimentary rocks along with evidence for the evolution of life on Earth. The study of the formation, transport and deposition of material to form fundamental part of the Earth sciences.

Sedimentology and Stratigraphy aims to provide students who are starting to study geology at university level with an introduction to the continuum of scales of observation and interpretation which lie between the formation of a grain of sand and a fill of sedimentary basin. In the first section of this book, the auhtor treats the formation and transport of sediment in a largely descriptive manner and introduces the concepts of environments and facies. The fuill spectrum of continental and marine sedimentary environments is then covered in a series of chapters which consider the depositional processes and products which may be considered to be characteristic fior each setting. In the final part, the principles of stratigraphy and interpretation of the fill of sedimenatry basins are considered. The text and illustrations are designed to be accessible to those completely new to the subject whilst at the same time the book covers the concepts and terminology used in more advanced work.
