About this book

Mud and mudstone, the most abundant of all sediments and sedimentary rocks, are relevant to many different human activities and disciplines and thus have a widely scattered literature. Key topics in this book include the production of mud, its transport, the important role of bottom oxygen, sites of deposition, burial, provenance, mudstones in basins and an overview of practical uses followed by an appendix and extended glossary.

Aus den Rezensionen: "Das von den Autoren aus den USA und Argentinien verfasste Buch wendet sich an Geologen und Mineralogen ! Jedes Kapitel enthalt ein Literaturverzeichnis ! Ein Glossary von 10 Seiten sowie eine Zusammenstellung der Tonminerale machen das Buch zu einem wertvollen Nachschlagewerk." (Tone, Tonsteine und Rutschungen, in: GMIT -- Geowissenschaftliche Mitteilungen, 2006, Issue 25, S. 100)
