Sedimentary geology : an introduction to sedimentary rocks and stratigraphy

Donald R. Prothero, Fred Schwab

This is an accessible introductory text for geology students, which encompasses both sedimentary rocks and stratigraphy. "Sedimentary Geology" utilizes important research in tectonics and sedimentation and focuses on crucial geological principles. The text covers a wide range of topics, including trace fossils, mudrocks, diagentetic structures and seismic stratigraphy. Contributions from chemistry, physics and structure are drawn upon throughout the book. The second edition brings the text right up to date and includes new sections on peri-glacial environments and the use of palesols new research covering recent thoughts about aragonite/calcite seas new developments in organodiagenetic dolomite models and perspective on the effect of drastic historical changes in the earth and findings on these changes in the sedimentary record.
