Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0632035781, Paperback)

Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is the first introductory text to relate sedimentological units to the larger stratigraphic picture. Representing current research priorities, it leaves behind an older--and now outdated--generation of textbooks. The author's aim is to consider the earth in terms of its physical environments, to describe the processes that affect generation, transport and deposition of sediment, and to build up a picture of the stratigraphy generated by these processes. The initial treatment is geomorphological and the general approach is non-mathematical. This will become the introductory textbook of choice in sedimentology and stratigraphy.

The first introductory text to relate the units of sedimentology to the larger, stratigraphic picture.
Eclipses an older generation of textbooks written before sequence stratrigraphy gave rise to a renaissance in stratigraphy.
Covers the full range of sedimentology, from sub-microscopic analysis of grains of sand to the palaeogeographic evolution of whole basins.
Largely a non-mathematical approach, within the grasp of students starting a degree course.
Explains clearly the technical terms of soft-rock geology.
