Principles of Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is a thoroughly modern, textbook that provides in-depth coverage of all major aspects of sedimentology and stratigraphy. Aimed at advanced undergraduates but suitable also for graduate students and professionals, it covers processes of sedimentation, describes the characteristics of sedimentary rocks formed in major sedimentary environments, and discusses the fundamental principles of stratigraphy and basin analysis, including recent developments in the important fields of magnetostratigraphy, seismic stratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, isotope stratigraphy, and sea-level analysis. The book presents divergent views on controversial topics and is extensively referenced and up-to-date thus encouraging students to refer to recently published literature. Although rigorous and thorough the book is easy to read and requires only modest preparation in geology.
