By Richard C. Selley

There are 3 different types 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 approaches that adjust gentle sediment into sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rocks contain sandstones, limestones and mudstones. all of the world's coal, such a lot of its water and fossil fuels, and lots of mineral deposits happen in sedimentary rocks. Applied Sedimentology exhibits how the research of sediments aids the exploration for and exploitation of typical 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
* largely illustrated with photographs and remotely sensed sea mattress pictures describing sedimentary approaches, items and depositional structures; colour plates illustrate sediment textures, lithologies, pore forms, 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
* broad references and up to date bibliography for additional study
