This fully revised and updated edition introduces the reader to sedimentology and stratigraphic principles, and provides tools for the interpretation of sediments and sedimentary rocks. The processes of formation, transport and deposition of sediment are considered and then applied to develop conceptual models for the full range of sedimentary environments, from deserts to deep seas and reefs to rivers. Different approaches to using stratigraphic principles to date and correlate strata are also considered, in order to provide a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of sedimentology and stratigraphy. The text and figures are designed to be accessible to anyone completely new to the subject, and all of the illustrative material is provided in an accompanying CD-ROM. High-resolution versions of these images can also be downloaded from the companion website for this book at: www.wiley.com/go/nicholssedimentology.

This text covers the processes that form sedimentary rocks and describes the important physical, chemical, biological and stratigraphic characteristics of these rocks. It explores the ways in which the study of sedimentary rocks is used to interpret depositional environments, changes in ancient sea level and other aspects of earth history.

The study of sediments such as silt, clay and sand, and the processes that shape their formation is referred to as sedimentology. Some of these processes are weathering, erosion, deposition, transport and diagenesis. Studies of sedimentary rocks and structures are fundamental to the reconstruction of past environments and understanding of the Earth's geologic history. The principles of superposition, original horizontality, lateral continuity and cross-cutting relationships are vital to the study of sedimentology. This field is closely associated with stratigraphy. It is a branch of geology that studies rock layers and stratification. It is crucial for the study of layered volcanic rocks and sedimentology. The sub-fields of stratigraphy are biostratigraphy and lithostratigraphy. Descriptions of rock core, sequence stratigraphy and lithology of the rock are some of the focus areas of sedimentology as well as stratigraphy. This book provides comprehensive insights into the fields of sedimentology and stratigraphy. Also included in this book is a detailed explanation of the various concepts and applications of these domains. In this book, using case studies and examples, constant effort has been made to make the understanding of the difficult concepts of these disciplines as easy and informative as possible for the readers.

This book, dedicated to carbonate rocks, approaches sequence stratigraphy from its sedimentologic background. It attempts to communicate by combining different specialities and different lines of reasoning, and by searching for principles underlying the bewildering diversity of carbonate rocks. It provides enough general background, in introductory chapters and appendices, to be easily digestible for sedimentologists and stratigraphers as well as earth scientists at large.
