Rapid progress in sedimentology began in the 1960's and is
continuing today. Not only has knowledge increased rapidly, but
technology has as well. Small and inexpensive, but powerful,
computers are changing the ways in which we gather, record, and
analyze our data or test ideas. The
pedagogical value of this text is evident in its careful approach
to the discipline. Not only is the text technologically oriented
(e.g. graphs of mathematical functions are programmed for automatic
digital computation and plotting), the author has taken great care
to consider the standard
petrographic methods as well. Embracing the subdisciplines of
sedimentary petrology, sedimentation, and stratigraphy, the text
describes the composition, texture, and structure of all kinds of
sedimentary rocks; the physical, chemical, and biological processes
that create sediments are also
considered. Examples of ancient and modern depositional and
diagenetic systems serve to illustrate the scientific methods by
which sedimentary process and product are described and diagnosed.
This text is ideal for students of geology who have acquired a
basic knowledge of mineralogy, petrology, and
stratigraphy, and are ready to apply these skills to an exciting
and challenging field.
