Introducing Sedimentology explains the key concepts of this core earth science discipline to students and to the interested non-specialist. In a wide-ranging survey of sedimentology, the authors consider sedimentary processes, the types of sedimentary rock, sedimentary structures and the environments, both marine and non-marine where sedimentation occurs. Sedimentology is a critical element of the fossil record while sedimentary basins provide the structures now exploited for natural resources including oil, gas and coal. Excessive use of terminology is avoided, all technical terms are in a Glossary and, as with all books in this series, the text is illustrated profusely.
