Applied Sedimentology by Richard C. Selley

By Richard C. Selley

There are 3 sorts of rock—igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks shape from the weathering, erosion, transportation and deposition of older rocks. Applied Sedimentology describes the formation, transportation and deposition of sediment, and the post-depositional tactics that adjust gentle sediment into sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks comprise sandstones, limestones and mudstones. the entire world's coal, so much of its water and fossil fuels, and lots of mineral deposits take place in sedimentary rocks. Applied Sedimentology indicates how the learn of sediments aids the exploration for and exploitation of ordinary assets, together with water, ores and hydrocarbons.

* thoroughly revised variation; Like its precursor, it describes sediments from sand grains to sedimentary basins; positive aspects up-to date account and critique of series and cyclostratigraphy
* generally illustrated with pictures and remotely sensed sea mattress photographs describing sedimentary tactics, items and depositional structures; colour plates illustrate sediment textures, lithologies, pore varieties, diagenetic textures, and carbonate and clastic series stratigraphic models
* Emphasises the purposes of sedimentology to the exploration for and exploitation of average assets, together with water, ores and hydrocarbons
* wide references and updated bibliography for additional study
